State-run Al-Akhbar reported Saturday President Mohamed Morsi and Prime Minister Hesham Kandhil would meet with a high-ranking IMF official Monday to discuss the proposed $4.8 billion loan package.
President Mohamed Morsi will meet Monday with Massoud Ahmed, head of the Middle East department at the International Monetary Fund, the newspaper said on its website, adding talks about the loan are expected to be part of the meeting.
