The Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis has promised his country will make repaying its debts to the International Monetary Fund its main priority.

Greece faces a series of large debt repayments in the coming weeks and months - including about 2bn euros to the IMF in March.

And some 6.7bn in ECB bonds is due to mature in July and August.

Mr Varoufakis said: "It would be excellent if we could agree with our partners to smooth over this cash flow hump that we're facing over the next few months".
