German Chancellor Angela Merkel will meet the chiefs of two of the institutions auditing Greece's bailout next week as questions over the International Monetary Fund's involvement in aiding the cash-strapped country come to the fore. Merkel will host IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker in separate meetings at the Chancellery Wednesday, Ulrike Demmer, a government spokeswoman, told reporters in Berlin Friday.The government still insists on the IMF making a financial contribution to Greece's bailout, Finance Ministry spokeswoman Friederike von Tiesenhausen said at the same news conference. Lagarde told Merkel that the IMF would join the current program and push a discussion on debt relief for Greece to 2018, well after the German elections, Die Welt reported.
