There's no rationale for IMF tax dollars and associated with that, American dollars that are part of the IMF funding for those to go to bail out Chinese bondholders or China itself, Pompeo said.
The IMF has said that so far it has not received any such request from Pakistan.
Pakistan needs about $3 billion in the next few months to avoid defaulting of loans from IMF, China and the World Bank.
Pompeo said he is looking forward to working with the new government of Pakistan.
There's new leadership in Pakistan, and we welcome engagement with them in a way that we think will benefit each of our two countries, Pompeo said.
