Venezuelan state-run oil company rules out a US dollar bond sale
The president of Venezuelan state owned oil company Pdvsa noted that the company will not take on further debts via US dollar bond sale
"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.
