The International Monetary Fund (IMF) will visit Türkiye at the end of September. This visit will be a routine visit by the technical team in preparation for the Article 4 consultation and Türkiye has not requested any financial support, IMF announced.
The Turkish Ministry of Treasury and Finance yesterday denied the allegations in some media outlets that "the IMF delegation will come and provide financial support in line with Türkiye's request" and announced that the delegation would make a routine visit to closely monitor Türkiye's recent economic policies.
The IMF also made a statement confirming the ministry's statement.
"The IMF technical team will make a routine visit to Türkiye in late September to hold discussions with the Turkish authorities in preparation for the Article 4 consultation," IMF officials said.
"The IMF has received no indication from the Turkish authorities that they intend to request financial assistance from the Fund," an IMF official said and added that the latest economic developments, macro financial policies will be on the agenda of the possible meeting.
On the other hand, Türkiye, which first borrowed from the IMF in January 1961 and whose debt reached a record high after the 2001 crisis, closed all its debts to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in 2013.
