Germany expects IMF participation in Greek bailout: Finance Ministry spokeswoman


BERLIN (Reuters) - The German government is still expecting the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to be involved in Greece's bailout program, a spokeswoman for the Finance Ministry said on Wednesday.

Germany's Bild newspaper had earlier reported that Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble was preparing for a continuation of aid for Greece without IMF participation.

"For us this involvement is promised and essential," the spokeswoman said.
