MOSCOW (Reuters) - Funds borrowed from Russia by Venezuelan firms, including oil producer PDVSA, are not part of a debt restructuring deal agreed between Moscow and Caracas on Wednesday, Venezuelan Economy and Finance Minister Simon Zerpa told reporters.
Under the terms of the Russo-Venezuelan debt deal, Caracas will pay Moscow back $3.15 billion over a 10-year period.
Those terms are quite flexible and favourable for Caracas, Venezuelan Vice President for Economics Wilmar Castro Soteldo said.
