Senior Lebanese official in IMF talks quits post

BEIRUT, June 29 (Reuters) - A senior member of Lebanon’s negotiating team with the International Monetary Fund has quit his post as finance ministry director general, telling al-Jadeed TV he had resigned over the way leaders are handling a financial crisis.

Alain Bifani, whose resignation was confirmed to Reuters by official sources, is the second member of Lebanon’s team at the IMF talks to resign this month.

Bifani told al-Jadeed the path being taken by Lebanese leaders was reckless and would hurt the people. Reuters could not immediately reach Bifani for comment. (Reporting by Samia Nakhoul and Ellen Francis; Writing by Tom Perry; Editing by Toby Chopra)
