The president of Venezuelan state-run oil company Pdvsa, Rafel Ramírez, said on Monday that the company has no intention of engaging in a new bond issue.

"We are issuing no bonds, and, particularly, we will not continue issuing bonds   to take on debts in US dollars. That is not envisaged," the minister told the press.

The oil company's debt ended in 2012 at USD 40.02 billion, 14.7% above the numbers recorded a year earlier, AFP reported.
