MUMBAI (Reuters) - India’s Tata Steel Ltd said on Friday it will explore all options for its European steel business after its proposed joint venture with German steel giant ThyssenKrupp AG failed to secure regulatory approval.

Tata Steel will explore finding a new partner for the asset and a partial sale of assets in Europe, Koushik Chatterjee, the chief financial officer of Tata Steel said on a conference call with media on Friday.

The company also remains committed to de-leveraging the balance sheet of the European business, Chatterjee said.
