Telecom Companies Confirm Talks
French telecom operator France Telecom confirms that the company is having a dialogue with Swedish-Finnish Telia Sonera.
In a press release, the French company, which is operating under the label Orange, pointed out the talks were not about taking over Telia Sonera.
France Telecom would rather consider its strategic options in the Nordic market, as the Swedish government is planning to sell mostly state-owned Telia Sonera.
On Thursday, France Telecom confirmed its interest in Norwegian operator Telenor.
