CAIRO (Reuters) - Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Kandil said on Sunday that talks with the International Monetary Fund on a crucial $4.8 billion loan would be back on track "very soon".
"Because of the domestic situation we had to postpone that, so we are doing a quick evaluation. We are going to be back on track very soon," he told a business forum in Cairo.
"We invited another mission of the IMF to again realign the program so we can move forward with our national reform program to handle the budget deficit, to handle the fiscal problems so we can move forward with growth."
