MEXICOCITY (Reuters) – Mexico’s $5 billion (4.06 billion pounds) rescue package to pay down debt at Pemex is a one-of-a-kind transaction that should give the struggling state oil company breathing space to focus on output and costs, Deputy Finance Minister Gabriel Yorio said.

Yorio told Reuters in an interview on Wednesday that the transaction, which also includes a debt refinancing plan, would be the last support the government gives to the world’s most indebted oil company this year.
