The board of the International Monetary Fund, one of Greece’s three international creditors, is to convene before the end of this month as planned to approve the release of a 3.6-billion-euro tranche of pending rescue funding, the Finance Ministry said in a statement on Saturday, rejecting press reports suggesting the meeting would be delayed.

The ministry’s statement also rebuffed media reports referring to a fiscal gap of 2 billion euros in 2015 and 3 billion in 2016.

“In accordance with the Medium-Term Program, which was voted through Parliament on Friday, there is no fiscal gap for the period 2014-18,” the statement said.
