ATHENS (Reuters) - Greece confirmed it will pay a 450 million euro ($485 million) loan installment to the International Monetary Fund on Thursday, a government official told Reuters.

"The payment has been scheduled and will go out later today," the official said.

Cash-strapped Athens is in talks with its euro zone partners and the IMF on a package of reforms it hopes will unlock remaining bailout aid.
