IMF Rep Quits Belarus

MINSK, Belarus -- The International Monetary Fund's resident representative in Belarus left the former Soviet republic Sunday with a final word of advice for the government -- change your policies.

"When the Belarus government changes its policy, the IMF will return to Minsk to support it," Richard Haas said as he left for Frankfurt.

Haas, who had been in Belarus for a year and a half, was recalled before a bizarre dispute erupted last month over diplomatic accommodation in Minsk.
