KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine hopes to reach an agreement with the International Monetary Fund next week about resuming cooperation, Central Bank Governor Yakiv Smoliy said on Friday, adding that expectation of an agreement had helped calm the foreign exchange market.

“Negotiations with the IMF continue, the mission is finishing its work next week and we expect a positive decision on continuing cooperation,” Smoliy said on the sidelines of the Yalta European Strategy (YES) meeting in Kiev.
