SAO PAULO — The International Monetary Fund on Friday joined calls for the US Congress to raise the country’s debt limit, warning that failure to act would risk a major global market upheaval.

“For the United States, it is critical to immediately address the debt ceiling and launch a deficit reduction plan that includes entitlement reform and revenue-raising tax reform,” the IMF said in an update of its April forecasts issued in Sao Paulo.
