ANTANANARIVO, March 13 (Reuters) - The International Monetary Fund has resumed normal relations with Madagascar, the country's finance minister said on Thursday, the first of international donors that froze aid after a 2009 coup following a calm election late last year.

"We have been waiting for this decision. The IMF is the key to opening the door to discussions with other donors," Finance Minister Lantoniaina Rasoloelison told Reuters. (Reporting by Lovasoa Rabary; Writing by Richard Lough; Editing by James Macharia)
