(Reuters) - Pakistan has secured financing that the International Monetary Fund required it to first arrange before considering a bailout deal worked out between IMF staff and the country, the Wall Street Journal reported on Sunday.

The IMF board will meet later on Monday to take up Pakistan's programme review to decide whether to approve a tranche of funding for the country.
