Ukraine Gets Breakthrough With Creditors as Minister Joins Talks

Updated on

For now, the public quarreling between Ukraine and its creditors is over.

Finance Minister Natalie Jaresko will join negotiations with bondholders next week after the government said both sides agreed to take the talks private, ending two months of deadlock over the $19 billion debt restructuring. The agreement will “allow principal-to-principal negotiations on the substance of a possible solution to start next week,” Ukraine’s Finance Ministry said in an e-mailed statement Wednesday. The nation’s bonds rallied the most in more than a week.
