Egyptians will be able to get dollars at one rate: Sisi

Egyptians will "very soon" be able to purchase U.S. dollars at a unified rate, state television quoted President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi as saying on Monday.

"The next few days will see a lot of good news for the Egyptian people," Sisi told youth participating in a leadership programme.

The comments come almost a week after Egypt's government announced it was in talks with the International Monetary Fund over a $12 billion loan programme.

The gap between the official and black market exchange rates has narrowed since the loan was announced.
