PARIS (Reuters) - French bank Societe Generale <SOGN.PA> said on Monday it agreed to pay $1.3 billion in penalties to the U.S. authorities to settle a dispute over violations of U.S. economic sanctions, adding the fines were entirely covered by provisions.

"These agreements will not have an additional impact on the Bank's results for 2018," the bank said in a statement.

Additionally, Societe Generale agreed to pay a $95 million penalty to the New York State Department of Financial Services.
