International Monetary Fund isn’t considering a complete cease of relations with Ukraine but is still waiting for certainty regarding the government's status and continuation of the reform programme. Deputy head of the External Relations Department of the Fund William Murray stated it at the traditional briefing in Washington, - reports UNIAN.
"We never cease relations with any country," - said Murray when asked whether there is some sort of deadline for Ukraine in terms of assessing the government's work and the results of reforms in the country.
"But, certainly, we said and say that we are still waiting for certainty with the government. We are waiting for the second review of the programme. As soon as we see more specific, of course, we will continue to work (EFF programme for reforms – Ed.)," - said Murray.
As previously reported, Ukraine and the IMF are currently discuss a wide range of issues within the framework of the second review of the cooperation programme, which includes various aspects of monetary, banking, anti-corruption policy, pension reform and privatization.
