Short-term solution near?

Swedish spokesman for Vladimir Antonov, Lars Carlström, has just told Swedish Radio that there is a short-term solution within reach for Saab that does not involve Antonov. He also says that we will probably know more about this solution very soon.

TTELA also quotes Carlström saying that a solution can be near and that this solution does not involve the European Investment Bank or the Swedish Government.

Swedish Radio can also report that Saab's communications director, Eric Geers, confirms talks with Chinese automakers and that they hope for a speedy solution:

In parallel with discussions about Antonov [becoming part owner of Saab], Saab's owner Spyker Cars is also talking with several Chinese automakers, says Saab's communications director Eric Geers. He will not say exactly how many or who they. But he says there has been progress and there are hopes of a speedy solution.
