Officials to visit Egyptfor talks on renewing aid
NEW YORK — Top officials from the International Monetary Fund will visit Cairo later this month to discuss restarting aid, the IMF announced Sunday.
The mission, led by the IMF’s Middle East and Central Asia chief Masood Ahmed, is expected to “resume discussions on possible financial support for a homegrown economic program,” the IMF said in a statement.
The fund “stands ready to support Egypt and work closely with the authorities,” it added.
