Crippled Pakistan May Finally Approach IMF For Bailout Package

According to reports in Pakistan Media, Indian delegation held a meeting with IMF this week in Washington during which it opposed IMF’s bailout package for Pakistan. The Indian representatives also levelled allegations against Pakistan claiming that the bailout package would be used to fund militant activities.

New Delhi, in the past, had also levelled allegations against Islamabad without any evidence raising objections on the packages planned for Pakistan, however, these allegations were not taken into consideration.

Earlier, India had refused to attend the second meeting of the Belt and Road Forum to be held in China by hurling baseless allegations against Pakistan. China, however, rejected the allegations and asked India to review its decision.

According to the press release, both the sides expressed their commitment to moving the discussions forward. “It was agreed that an IMF mission will visit Pakistan by the end of April 2019,” the statement added.
