Washington will keep an “open mind” regarding the participation of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in the Greek bailout programme, a senior US Treasury official said.
The US, the largest shareholder in the IMF, will likely not rule out new funding for Greece by the Fund, despite the criticism of many Republicans regarding the two previous bailout programs in 2010 and 2012.
“We’re looking for the Europeans to help Greece to resolve its economic problems, and we think the IMF can play a supportive role,” the official told reporters, adding that Washington looks at any potential future agreement “with an open mind”.(source: euractiv)
