The IMF added that its board is set to meet on Aug. 23 to approve Argentina's 5th and 6th reviews to "unlock the agreed disbursements."

The Fund's comments came after the Argentine government devalued its currency by nearly 18%, while the benchmark interest rate will be hiked 21 percentage points to 118%, as pressure built on Argentina's financial markets following a primary election.
