PM optimistic about IMF-Ukraine talks.

By bne IntelliNews June 15, 2010
The government is holding difficult negotiations with the International Monetary Fund (IMF), and there is hope for an optimistic conclusion of these talks, PM Mykola Azarov has said, analyzing the first 100 days of the government's activities under his leadership. The prepared cooperation programme is designed for two years and is needed to support reforms in the economy, announced by the President of Ukraine, he said. According to him, the main problem of the negotiations is that the IMF does not trust in the promises of the Ukrainian authorities. "None of the conditions of the program, which was signed by the previous government and president, were fulfilled, while the money was received under the program. And this is the main complexity of the negotiations," Azarov emphasized.
