IMF expects to resume discussions with Sri Lanka as soon as possible

The International Monetary Fund says that they are hoping for a resolution of the current turmoil in Sri Lanka in order to resume the discussions on an IMF-supported program.

"We hope for a resolution of the current situation that would allow for our resumption of a dialogue on an IMF supported program," Gerry Rice of the IMF Communication Department said.

"Clearly, the political and the social emergency situation ... interrupted those discussions and we hope to resume as soon as possible. In the meantime, we do have technical counterparts still in, some of the key ministries in the Central Bank and the Ministry of Finance. So, we are able to continue discussions there,"

"But the high-level discussions with the authorities that we would need to begin discussions on a program, we hope again, that these would be able to resume as soon as possible. So, looking to do all we can in just an extraordinarily difficult situation."
