sakellaridisGreece said on Monday it will not have any problem meeting its financial obligations this month, after reports indicated that the country might have difficulty repaying its international creditors in the coming months.

“The public should not be concerned … the Greek government has been looking for solutions to ensure there are no problems in paying the IMF and the other financial commitments we have in March,” Greek government spokesman Gavriil Sakellaridis said.

He stressed that the government would not have any trouble meeting its financial obligations, including a 1.5-billion-euro International Monetary Fund (IMF) repayment this month.

Over the weekend, Athens hinted that it may face difficulties meeting a major debt repayment to the European Central Bank (ECB), and other creditors this summer.
