The Prime Minister’s press office has issued a statement urging the IMF to wrap up negotiations as soon as possible, without unrealistic demands, beyond what was agreed in July 2015.

The statement came as a response to the IMF managing director Christine Lagarde, in relation to the recent WikiLeaks revelation.

According to the statement, the strategy of delays, in order to create a credit event in Greece ahead of the UK’s EU referendum would be major foolishness, which must be prevented. Furthermore, the statement argues that Greece is, as always, a safe country.
