WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The International Monetary Fund said on Friday that it was working closely with Argentine authorities to strengthen the country’s IMF-supported economic program, expressing confidence Argentina would overcome its present difficulties.

“As the (IMF) managing director stressed, Argentina has the full support of the Fund and we are confident that the strong commitment and determination of the Argentine authorities will help the country overcome the current difficulties,” IMF spokesman Gerry Rice said in a statement.

Rice added that IMF chief Christine Lagarde, Fund staff and Argentine Treasury Minister Nicolas Dujovne and his team would meet on Tuesday for talks.
