Sources said that the installment of 1.8 billion dollars has been requested to be postponed till December this year, which includes the principal amount of 1.46 billion dollars and interest of 323 million dollars.
Sources said that in case of delay in loan disbursement, Pakistan would not be able to get new loans till December this year, while loans from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) would be exempted from the ban.
