During a press conference on Saturday, Arabi asserted that the first batch of the loan will be sent to Egypt after several weeks of the approval. The total loans and deposits that Egypt is seeking are estimated at $14.5 billion until the end of June 2014, Arabi said. Egypt will receive loans from its development partners, including the European Bank, the African Development Bank, the European Union, the United States, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Turkey, he added.
