SEOUL, June 13 (Reuters) - There is no sign of foreign investors trying to sell out of South Korea's domestic bond market but the government is closely watching the market, a finance ministry official told Reuters on Thursday.
'There's no problem in supply and demand (of domestic bonds) but some sense of anxiety in sentiment,' Kim Jin-myung, head of the ministry's treasury bond department, said of growing investor anxiety over a potential capital flight out of emerging markets as particpants speculate on the timing of a reduction in
the U.S. Federal Reserve's monetary stimulus programme.
