MUMBAI -- Reliance Communications said on Thursday that a core committee of creditors to the Indian wireless carrier has decided to oppose China Development Bank's insolvency petition, in which it is seeking to recover around $2 billion.

In a late evening statement to the Bombay Stock Exchange, Reliance said that the Committee of Financial Creditors, a core group within the State Bank of India-led joint lenders forum, will oppose the Chinese bank's petition "in the admission stage itself" before the National Company Law Tribunal. The committee had met on Wednesday.
