Czech cbank says ready for FX intervention if needed- paper

PRAGUE, Oct 11 (Reuters) - The Czech central bank is ready to intervene to weaken the crown currency if it feels there is a risk of long-term deflation pressures, Governor Miroslav Singer was quoted as saying on Monday.

But the bank is not currently discussing details about any such intervention, he said in an interview with daily Hospodarske Noviny.

Singer also said the bank did not have a "dramatically good feeling" about the current crown rate, which is stronger on average than the bank's forecast.
