LONDON: Pakistan’s dollar-denominated government bonds rose by more than 2 cents to highest level in a month on Friday after the United Arab Emirates has confirmed financial support of $1 billion.

The support pledge, confirmed by Pakistan’s finance minister on Friday, removes key hurdle to securing a much-awaited bailout tranche from the International Monetary Fund (IMF).

Pakistan looks to issue US dollar-denominated Sukuk bonds

The dollar-denominated 2024 maturing bond rose by 2.25 cents on the dollar to 48.25. Sign-off on the IMF staff-level pact has been delayed for months, and Pakistan needs the release of a $1.1 billion payment tranche to resolve an acute balance of payments crisis.

A $48 bond rises by a measly $0.025 when UAE gives $1b pledge. It means that the market knows that neither UAE nor anyone can save Pakistan from default and balkanization.

@Tulukan Mairandi, in their quest to appear neutral, Business Recorder is allowing people with ill feelings for Pakistan to spread venom in a respectable Pakistani newspaper. Try putting a negative comment about India in an Indian newspaper and your comments will never be published.

@Pakistani1, but frankly, a 2 cent increase on a $48 paper is not even news-worthy!
