IMF chief to meet Merkel

The IMF, which has not yet confirmed its participation in a third bailout, has argued for some measure of debt relief for Athens.

It has placed the fund at odds with Berlin and other governments in the 19-member eurozone.

German officials said that lack of participation by the IMF would bring about an end to the Greek rescue programme, potentially bringing about a new funding crisis for Athens.

Merkel, who is facing an electoral threat from the right-wing Alternative for Germany this September, is keen to get the IMF on board, to convince voters that the bailout is credible.
