Asiana Airlines' top shareholder said earlier this month that it would sell its entire stake in the carrier, bowing to pressure from creditors who had rejected Asiana's earlier request for support of 500 billion won.

Creditors now offered to buy perpetual bonds worth 500 billion won and set a credit limit of 800 billion won, among others, Finance Minister Hong Nam-ki said.

Speaking at a meeting, he also said creditors were targeting the sale of Asiana Airlines, South Korea's second-biggest airline after Korean Air Lines, within this year.
