“We agreed to cooperate on the common goals of completing reforms and securing debt relief,” said the IMF director, Christine Lagarde after meeting with Greek PM Alexis Tsipras on the sidelines of the Worl Economic Forum at Davos, Thursday.

Foreign media correspondents covering the meeting posted photos of the two on their twitter feeds smiling and in a light mood.
At the end of the meeting, Christine Lagarde in a tweet said she had met Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and congratulated him on Greece’s progress in economic reforms.
