The UAE’s Ras Al Khaimah does not plan to issue a US 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.
