RIYADH (Reuters) - International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde said on Saturday that the IMF's talks with Greece on its debt crisis had been positive.
The discussion of Greece's fiscal performance, structural reforms to its fiscal policy and sustainability of its debt position have been "very good and very productive", she said without elaborating.
Lagarde was speaking at a news conference after meeting with senior officials from the six oil exporters in the Gulf Cooperation Council.
