Egypt PM expects IMF visit this month
CAIRO Feb 14 (Reuters) - Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Kandil said on Thursday he expected an International Monetary Fund team to visit this month for talks on a loan agreement seen as vital to supporting the country's economy.
Asked when the IMF mission would return to resume talks on the $4.8 billion loan, Kandil said: "Within this month, God willing." Egypt concluded an initial agreement for the loan in November but in December postponed final ratification because of political unrest.
