    IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde said that form of the International Monetary Fund participation in bail out of Greece may vary depending on the commitments of Greece.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The International Monetary Fund has no intention to drop participation in the so-called Troika bail out of Greece, which also involves the European Commission (EC) and the European Central Bank (ECB), IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde said on Thursday.

    "We will not walk away. Our form of participation may vary depending on the commitments of Greece and the undertaking of the European partners, but we will not walk away," Lagarde stated in an interview on the global economy.
