IMF willing to help bail out Ireland; WORLDBULLETINS.

THE International Monetary Fund said yesterday it could help Ireland amid speculation that the financiallystrapped country is heading for a bail-out.

The IMF had not received any request from the Dublin government so far, managing director Dominique Strauss-Kahn said at a meeting in Yokohama, Japan.

"I think they can manage well," he told reporters. "If at one point in time... the Irish want some support from the IMF, of course we will be ready."

On Friday European leaders released a statement seeking to reassure Ireland's panicky creditors by promising that tougher new terms for future bail-outs of indebted countries would not harm them.
