IMF says no progress in Greece talks, deal far off

[WASHINGTON] The International Monetary Fund said Thursday Greece and its official creditors have made no recent progress towards resolving their differences.

Hours after Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras held talks with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French leader Francois Hollande on a possible new bail-out deal, the IMF said major differences had not been bridged.

"There are still major differences between us in most key areas," IMF spokesman Gerry Rice told reporters.

"There has been no progress in narrowing these differences recently. Thus we are well away from an agreement."
