Talks with IMF go into closing stage

Islamabad, February 08(Online): The Finance Minister Asad Umar has said that talks with IMF have entered into final phase.
The sources said that another contact was made between Pakistan and IMF but both sides could not reach any conclusion. Although talks were positive in which differences of two parties were diminished, but it could not end in fruitful way.
The spokesman of Ministry of Finance Dr. Khaqan Najeeb said that it is hoped that before the spring session of IMF’s Executive Board, the matter would be resolved. The programme of IMF is not only to get dollars but it would also be helpful in carrying out international agreements.
“Pakistan has made it clear that it has not any urgency to get the programme of IMF but it would take it on favorable conditions. Pakistan would not make such a deal in hurry which would be not conducive to economy and people of the country”, he added.
