Shaukat Tarin has urged the country not to give up hope after rejecting the impression of failure of Pakistan-International Monetary Fund (IMF) discussions, according to media reports on Monday.
As per Shaukat Tarin, it is incorrect to believe that Pakistan’s discussions with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) have failed.
He stated that the secretary of finance is still in Washington, and that the head of the Federal Board of Revenue (FBR) is in communication with the team negotiating with the IMF.
The meeting with the IMF’s MD was constructive, and the negotiations with the fund would be successful, he continued. In response to a query, Shaukat Tarin stated that banks continually demand that we “do more,” but Pakistan cannot cross the redlines.
Previously, the Finance Ministry’s spokesperson had similarly denied rumours of the collapse of discussions with the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
Muzzammil Aslam, the Finance Ministry’s spokeswoman, stated on Twitter that the rumours regarding the collapse of discussions with the IMF are false.
He stated that the discussions with the IMF will start on Monday (today) and would continue without a pause until they were successful, with no timeframe for completion.
