Greece Can't Make June 5 IMF Payment Without Deal: Report

MarketWatch Pulse

Greece won't be able to make a payment due June 5 to the International Monetary Fund unless Athens strikes an agreement with its creditors, Reuters reported Wednesday, citing the Greek government's parliamentary speaker. The "negotiations are coming to a head," said parliamentary speaker Nikos Filis, who is part of the ruling Syriza party. Greece is facing payments of 1.5 billion euros ($1.67 billion) in June, and is still deadlocked in talks with the IMF and the European Union. Last week, Athens paid €750 million to the IMF, but did so by using funds from an account that's held at the IMF.
