Austria will only help Greece if IMF does-finmin
VIENNA, June 10
VIENNA, June 10 (Reuters) - Austria will only help Greece if the International Monetary Fund (IMF) continues to do so, Austrian Finance Minister Maria Fekter told a magazine.
"If the IMF stops helping Greece because it believes that the progress made in the country is not good enough then Austria will also not pay anymore," she told Austrian magazine Format in remarks published on Friday.
"For us it is clear that without the IMF, there will be no more payouts," Fekter said.
She also told the magazine that a Greek debt cancellation or bankruptcy were "out of the question." (Reporting by Sylvia Westall)
