Euro zone, IMF making progress on Greece - Eurogroup's Juncker
BIELEFELD, Germany Nov 17 (Reuters) - Euro zone governments and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) are making progress in solving their row over how to make Greece's debt manageable, Eurogroup President Jean-Claude Juncker told Reuters on Saturday.
"I expect us to go the rest of the distance with the IMF," Juncker said on the sidelines of a speech in north-western Germany.
"We are working intensively on a compromise with the IMF on Greece and are making progress," he told Reuters, adding it remained to be seen how much the differences had been narrowed by Tuesday when a meeting of European finance ministers takes place.
