Updated on

The U.S. told International Monetary Fund board members that it won’t seek the removal of Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva over allegations that she pushed staff to manipulate data for a World Bank report to help China, likely clearing the way for her to keep her job.

The position was taken during board deliberations Monday, people familiar with the matter said on condition of anonymity to discuss the private discussions.
