PARIS, March 19 (Reuters) - Societe Generale SA said on Monday that it had entered into a “more active” phase of discussions with U.S. authorities over their investigation into IBOR submissions and transactions made by the French bank involving Libyan counterparts.

The bank said it hoped for a resolution to the two matters in the coming weeks.

Within this provision is approximately 1 billion euros that is allocated to IBOR and Libyan matters, the bank said.
