Dubai World, which met its creditors on Monday, said it would work with lenders to seek a debt standstill in "an orderly way" and will get government financial support if an agreement is reached.
"As long as a standstill is successfully implemented, Dubai World has assurances that the government of Dubai ... will provide financial support to cover working capital and interest expenses to ensure the continuity of key projects," it said in a statement.
The troubled state-owned conglomerate outlined its financial position to creditors earlier on Monday but did not ask for a standstill agreement. A Dubai World spokesman said the creditors' questions to the conglomerate were "constructive."
