CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuelan state oil company Petroleos de Venezuela (PDVSA) has initiated bank transfers to meet its foreign debt commitments for the month, the company said in a statement on Thursday.

    PDVSA, the main source of foreign exchange earnings for the South American country, must pay more than $3.0 billion in debts in the remainder of 2017.

    “Banking transfers corresponding to the interest on the PDVSA 2022 bond coupon of 12.75 percent for $191.3 million have already begun,” the company said. “Thus, the state shows its full solvency.”
