Greek crisis: Lagarde calls for 'significant' debt relief as Tsipras issues early election warning - live updates

The issue of Greece’s unsustainable debt burden has moved back up the agenda, as top officials from the country’s creditors prepare to begin talks on a third bailout.

IMF chief Christine Lagarde has reiterated the Fund’s position, that “significant” debt relief is needed, as part of a new aid deal.

Lagarde also wants to see “sensible fiscal targets” (which must take account of the recent economic turmoil), “structural measures” to reform the Greek economy, and enough funding to cover Athens’ medium-term financing needs.
