Pakistan Says Saudi Arabia, Dubai Won’t Lend Without IMF Deal

Pakistan’s finance minister said countries that have typically been generous in lending to the crisis-hit nation are proceeding more cautiously now.

“We went to Saudi Arabia, Dubai and spoken to other countries -- they are ready to give money, but all of them say we need to go to the IMF first,” said the minister, Miftah Ismail, on May 28.
