[JAKARTA] Indonesia's government has no plan to cut its stake in state airline PT Garuda Indonesia Tbk, state enterprises minister Rini Soemarno told Reuters on Tuesday.

The government owned 60.5 per cent of Garuda as of June 30, Thomson Reuters data showed.

Garuda Chief Executive Arif Wibowo told Reuters in a text message on Tuesday that the carrier was not seeking more foreign shareholders.
