WASHINGTON - The US supports European Union candidate Dominique Strauss-Kahn for managing director of the International Monetary Fund, Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson said yesterday.
"I urge the [IMF] board to positively consider the candidacy of Dominique Strauss-Kahn" to succeed Rodrigo Rato, Paulson said.
"The US is supporting Mr Strauss-Kahn because we believe he will work to make the bold reforms necessary to lead a strong and relevant IMF into the future," he added.
Strauss-Kahn is vying with Russia's Czech candidate Josef Tosovsky to succeed Rato next month. - Sapa-AFP
