NEW YORK, Nov 18 (Reuters) - The International Monetary Fund said on Thursday current virtual meetings with a delegation from El Salvador are not about a support program with the Fund.
“Just to be clear, this is an article IV discussion and the dialogue would be around policies that could, potentially, underpin an IMF program with El Salvador,” said Gerry Rice, IMF spokesman, in a scheduled press conference.
Article IV discussions are annual meetings the Fund has with its members and don’t necessarily lead to funding support. (Reporting by Rodrigo Campos)
