Arab Today, arab today Lagarde: Bailout programme good enough for Greece

Christine Lagarde feels Greece is in control of its financial future No additional measures would be necessary for Greece if it carries out the reforms under its bailout programme, IMF chief Christine Lagarde said in an interview with the Sunday edition of Kathimerini .
"But if the structural reforms are not carried out... then more cuts would be necessary," the head of the International Monetary Fund told the Greek newspaper.
Entering a sixth year straight of recession, the heavily indebted country is relying on EU-IMF bailout packages.
It also received a private-sector debt cut early last year. Since 2010, the EU and IMF have committed €240bn ($320bn) in rescue loans to Greece, while last week the IMF unblocked a frozen tranche of €3.2bn from its pending aid package.
"Greece holds its future in its own hands... It is up to the country itself to succeed in its programme," Lagarde said.
The IMF chief said she had a very good working relationship with both the Greek prime minister and finance minister. "Prime Minister Antonis Samaras and I have a very good and honest relationship," she said, adding that the premier has even "surprised" her with his stance following his election.
Lagarde also said she believed the co-existence of three different parties in Greece's coalition government is beneficial.
"Regarding the implementation of the programme and the responsibilities towards the people, a wide coalition is much more important than a tight majority," she said.
Conservative Prime Minister Antonis Samaras's coalition government has lost 16 deputies since coming to power in June, as a result of opposition to continued austerity.
It now counts a majority of 163 seats out of an overall 300.
On Friday, the IMF's mission chief for Greece Poul Thomsen said the country will still need additional help from its European partners next year.
