Moscow mayor says no plan to quit after Russian reports

 

Moscow mayor Yuri Luzhkov said on Monday he has no plans to resign despite a series of media reports that a battle with the Kremlin would force him to quit, the news agency Interfax reported.

Speculation has been growing that Luzhkov could resign or be dismissed as early as Monday, his first working day after returning from week-long vacation in Austria.

"I have no plans to resign," Interfax quoted Luzhkov as saying.
