BEIRUT (Reuters) - A meeting between the IMF and Lebanon’s new finance minister on Saturday is a courtesy visit from an executive director that represents Lebanon and not a formal staff meeting, a source familiar with the meeting said on Friday.
“This is not a staff visit. This is a courtesy visit from the office of the executive director that represents Lebanon on the board of the IMF to meet the new minister,” said the source.
