EU Official Says Possible to Reach a Greek Deal in March

German Chancellor Angela Merkel will meet the chiefs of two of the institutions auditing Greece’s bailout next week as questions over the International Monetary Fund’s involvement in aiding the cash-strapped country come to the fore.

Merkel will host IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker in separate meetings at the Chancellery on Wednesday, Ulrike Demmer, a government spokeswoman, told reporters in Berlin on Friday.
