DUBAI Feb 11 The United Arab Emirates' Ras Al
Khaimah does not plan to issue a U.S. dollar-denominated bond in
2017 and has not had talks with banks regarding that, the
emirate said in a statement on Saturday.
Reuters published an article on Feb. 9 which said the
emirate, one of the seven which make up the UAE, had been in
talks with lenders over a potential international bond sale,
citing banking sources.
At the time, telephone calls and an email to Ras Al
Khaimah's finance department seeking comment were unanswered.
