WASHINGTON Nov 4 (Reuters) - The United States has formally denied in writing a TransCanada request to pause the U.S. review of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline, a State Department spokesman said on Wednesday.

State Department spokesman John Kirby told a briefing there was no legal requirement to pause the Keystone review based on the applicant's request.
