OSLO, March 16 (Reuters) - Oslo-listed Telenor (TEL.OL) on Thursday declined to comment on a report saying the operator was in talks with CK Hutchison (0001.HK) relating to its businesses in Sweden and Denmark.

"We do not comment on speculation or rumors related to our business," a Telenor spokesperson told Reuters in an email.

The Financial Times on Thursday reported the Norwegian firm was in talks to combine its businesses in Denmark and Sweden with those of Hong Kong-listed ports-to-telecoms conglomerate CK Hutchison, owner of telecoms group Three.
