Russia will not switch out of euro reserves -Medvedev
PARIS Nov 27 (Reuters) - Russia has no plans to switch its euro-denominated foreign exchange reserves into other currencies, Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev said on Tuesday during a visit to Paris.
"We have no intention of reallocating them ... Despite the problems (in the euro zone ) we think it will get better," Medvedev told a news conference.
Russia has signalled in the past that it could be willing to diversify its forex reserves by adding other currencies such as the Australian dollar.
