    [02] IMF on Kahn-Papandreou talks

    WASHINGTON (ANA-MPA) - In an announcement on the late 2009 communication between Dominique Strauss-Kahn and Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou, the International Monetary Fund underlined that "we are always in contact with our member-states and it is not unusual for the general director to speak with the leadership of a country."

    It stresses that "in the case of Greece these talks concerned the Greek government's appeal for the provision of know-how regarding the preparation of the budget and tax evasion" and that "there were no negotiations and no agreement on economic aid between the Greek government and the IMF before the official application Greece submitted for economic aid at the end of April 2010."
