Switzerland denied Tuesday that it was close to a deal covering the country's entire financial sector that would finally settle a dispute with Washington over US citizens' undeclared assets in Swiss banks.
Mario Tuor, a Swiss finance ministry spokesman, told AFP that a report posted on the website of the country's public broadcaster RTS was misplaced.
"We can't confirm anything," Tuor told AFP, underlining that the process was still ongoing.
"But the bulk of this article is completely false," he added.
