Pakistan’s financial adviser leaves Washington after a meeting with the IMF is inconclusive

Washington [United States of America], October 22 (ANI): Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan’s financial and income adviser, Shaukat Tarin, went to Washington on Thursday after a meeting with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) did not reach a satisfactory conclusion. Has left, media reports said.

The negotiations may have ended with the approval of the IMF’s government policy. Treasury Secretary Yousaf Khan has returned to continue the discussion, Dawn reported.

Tallinn reportedly arrived in Washington in early October, then stayed in New York for 10 days before traveling to New York. He returned to the city on Tuesday instead of flying to London according to his schedule, Dawn reported.

The adviser “quietly” left Washington and boarded a train to catch an international flight from New York City. According to dawn, he is expected to attend Imran Khan, Saudi Arabia, during his three-day visit to attend the launch of the Middle East Green Initiative Summit, which begins on October 23.

However, the newspaper quoted IMF sources as saying it did not want the Imran Khan government to take the necessary actions to close the revenue-expenditure gap.

According to the newspaper, the Imran Khan administration is addressing concerns that the country’s general election could raise prices even further by taking steps to reduce inequality.

If negotiations with the IMF are successful, the country will be facilitated with an immediate payment of US $ 1 billion.

A US $ 6 billion agreement was signed between Pakistan and the IMF in July 2019, but the program derailed in January 2020 and regained in March 2020. The program derailed again in June 2021. From June to August, there was no serious discussion between the two parties. (ANI)
