CAIRO (Reuters) - Egypt has reached a preliminary agreement with the International Monetary Fund after nearly two weeks of talks to secure a $12 billion lending program and will make an announcement on Thursday, two government sources said.
The sources said no deal had been signed yet but that intensive talks with an IMF delegation that arrived in Cairo on July 30 had resulted in a preliminary understanding. They gave no more details.
