SEOUL, April 21 (Reuters) - South Korea's government will
consider injecting fresh funds into the loss-making South Korean
unit of General Motors Co, the Yonhap news agency
reported on Saturday, citing the finance minister.
The minister, Kim Dong-yeon, told reporters in Washington on
the sidelines of a G20 finance ministers and central bank
governors meeting, any injection of fresh public funds would not
be aimed at repaying debt incurred by the carmaker.
"We can consider injecting new money if it's about fresh,
rationale investment instead," the minister said.
