The Iranian Government says it has sought financial assistance from the International Monetary Fund to aid its fight against Coronavirus.
The is the first time since 1962 that the country has gotten a loan benefit from IMF.
“Our central bank requested access” to the IMF’s Rapid Financing Instrument, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Twitter, urging the fund’s board to respond to the request “responsibly”.
IMF/IMF Board should adhere to Fund's mandate, stand on right side of history & act responsibly.
