New York - Russian state-controlled Sberbank has said General Motors should compensate it for an aborted attempt to sell a stake in Opel or it will sue, the Associated Press reported.

Sberbank and Canada's Magna tried to buy a stake in Opel, but the deal fell through last month after months of painstaking negotiations when GM's board decided to keep the the loss-making unit.

Sberbank and GM could not immediately be reached.
