Spain Hasn’t Asked for IMF Aid, No Help Planned

The International Monetary Fund said it is not preparing financial aid for Spain and the country denied any talks about a bailout even as its borrowing costs approach euro-era records.

“There’s been no request for financial assistance from Spain and the IMF is not making plans for financial assistance to Spain,” Gerry Rice, the IMF’s director of external relations, told reporters in Washington today.
