CAIRO, March 19
CAIRO, March 19 (Reuters) - The Egyptian government expects to sign a deal with the IMF by the end of June and to have received the first tranche of a $4.8 billion loan by then, the planning minister told Al-Ahram online on Tuesday.
Ashraf al-Araby also said he expected an IMF technical mission to arrive in Cairo in the coming days to complete talks on the deal. He said discussions earlier this week with a senior International Monetary Fund official did not deal with the idea of an emergency IMF loan.
