Camdessus Offers Condolences on Death of H.M. King Hussein of Jordan

The Managing Director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Michel Camdessus, made the following statement.

"I learned with deep sadness of the passing away of H.M. King Hussein of Jordan. On behalf of the International Monetary Fund and myself, I have conveyed our sincere condolences to the royal family and the people of Jordan.

"Over many years, the Kingdom of Jordan and the IMF have developed a very close and productive relationship. We will take every possible step to maintain and strengthen it. It is in this spirit that the IMF staff mission currently visiting Amman will remain at the disposal of the government to complete the negotiation of a three-year extended Fund facility and contribute to the IMF’s role in catalyzing international support for Jordan in the present tragic circumstances," Camdessus said.
