The IMF stressed: "The SDR allocation is unconditional, however, as we have said before, it is important that the SDR allocation help replenish depleted central bank reserves and that any use is done in a transparent and responsible manner that supports needed macroeconomic adjustment and reforms and is used to help with the many urgent needs of the Lebanese people."
