Egypt’s Orascom Telecom is not revising its $6.6 billion plan to sell assets to Russia’s Vimpelcom to exclude its Algerian unit, the company’s chairman said on Tuesday.

Egyptian billionaire Naguib Sawiris told reporters on the sidelines of a conference if his company were not invited to negotiate with Algeria it would proceed with arbitration.

Sawiris added that Orascom has no plans to issue bonds in the short term.
