CAIRO, March 12 (Reuters) - Egypt will not sign any "emergency" loan with the International Monetary Fund and any loan agreement will be within the context of the country's economic programme, cabinet spokesman Alaa el-Hadidi said on Tuesday.

"There will not be a fast or emergency loan," Hadidi told reporters, adding that no timing has been set yet for the IMF mission's visit to Egypt.
