Greece has repaid the amount it owed to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for April in the framework of its support programme, the Fund’s chief Christine Lagarde confirmed on Thursday.

“I received my money,” Lagarde was quoted as saying by AFP during a speech she made in Washington. Earlier, Athens had announced that it had given the order to the Bank of Greece to transfer 459 million euros to the IMF.
