Dubai-based telecommunications firm Etisalat is not interested in taking a stake in Kuwaiti telecom firm Zain or its African assets, Ahmed Bin Ali, a company spokesman, told Reuters.

However, the company, which recently lost a bid to take over a stake in Morocco’s telecoms firm, Meditel, is still interested in the country’s sector. “We are monitoring closely and we still think that Morocco is a good market,” Ali said. “It depends on what new is coming up and it does not only include Meditel but any other opportunity.”
