Earlier in the day, media reported Greece began to repay a 4.2 billion euro ($6.8 billion) debt to two of its international creditors, the ECB and the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
“ECB confirms it has been repaid. #Greece,” the institution said via its Twitter account.
The IMF also confirmed Monday Greece made a debt repayment of $2.2 billion.
The payments come after the European Commission offered a short-term bridge loan worth at least 7 billion euro ($7.6 billion) to assist Greece last week as the eurozone leaders reached an agreement on a third bailout package for Athens.
