The suspension is possible because higher oil prices have improved government revenues and the government's $17.5 billion issue of international bonds last October was successful, Maaal quoted unnamed official sources as saying.
The halt to domestic bond issues has helped to ease a liquidity squeeze in the banking system that sent the three-month interbank offered rate soaring to an eight-year high of 2.386 percent in late October. The rate fell to 1.795 percent on Monday.
