TeliaSonera (TLSNY.PK, 0H6X.L) has sold its 18.6 percent stake in Smart Mobile, Cambodia, and has reached a deal to further increase its ownership in Ncell, Nepal.

If and when the agreement on the increase of ownership is finally consummated, TeliaSonera would increase its ownership in Ncell by 12.43 percent for today's market value. The parties have agreed not to disclose financial terms of the deal, but the transactions would have no effect on TeliaSonera's profit and loss statement.
