DUBLIN, Nov 11 (Reuters) - Comments by Ireland’s central bank governor in which he referred to the IMF were not laying the ground for IMF assistance, the country’s Finance Minister said on Thursday.
Governor Patrick Honohan said on Wednesday that any package of economic measures that the IMF might recommend would not be much different to what the government is already planning to implement.
Speaking in Dublin on Thursday, Finance Minister Brian Lenihan said Ireland had the capacity to put itself back on a credible footing and that instability in Irish bonds at present was due to uncertainty over the future of euro zone sovereign debt.
