Stock indices traded slightly lower ahead the German parliament's vote on a new Greek bailout programme.
International Monetary Fund (IMF) Managing Director Christine Lagarde said in an interview with French radio station Europe1 on Friday that the IMF will participate in the third Greek bailout programme it includes debt restructuring and government reforms.
She added that Greece needs a debt relief that could be a significant extension of loan maturities, stretching of repayment schedules, and reducing interests charged.
Eurozone finance ministers agreed on Thursday to provide a third bailout programme to Greece.
