France Telecom is preparing for a possible bidding war for Telia Sonera with Norwegian telecom operator Telenor, according to the Financial Times newspaper.

The French company's advisors have assembled a document seen by the newspaper.

The document contains assertions that a combination of Telia Sonera and Telenor would fall apart due to encumbering regulations, political difficulties, and the loss of jobs in the Nordic region.
