The Minister also commented on MP Zahid Oruj’s opinions about direction of al money to IBA’s foreign debts: “The state replaced IBA’s liabilities with its liabilities. As a result of this, our external debt increased by $2.4 billion. However, IBA is not in danger any more. And its ratings are improving”.
