(Recasts with U.N. denial)

COPENHAGEN, Dec 18 (Reuters) - The United Nations denied asking world leaders to extend their stay in Copenhagen because of deadlock at a U.N. climate summit meant to end on Friday.

Earlier, European Union Environment Commissioner Stavros Dimas had said UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon had asked people not to leave on Friday night. United Nations spokeswoman Marie Okabe said this was not the case.
