Jan. 3 (Bloomberg) -- South Korea’s foreign-exchange reserves fell by $2.23 billion to $306.4 billion at the end of December from a month ago as the euro and pound weakened against the dollar, the Bank of Korea said in a statement.

The central bank didn’t purchase more gold last month after buying 15 metric tons in November, according to the statement.
