ISLAMABAD: The government on Friday paid $260 million to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) as a part of loan repayment, Express News reported.

The fresh payment was made to return money Pakistan borrowed under a bailout package signed in November 2008.

The last IMF repayment of $391 million was made at the end of May.
