Gov’t confirms new meeting with Special Master Pollack on Friday
Cabinet Chief Jorge Capitanich confirmed that the Argentine delegation headed by Economy Minister Axel Kicillof that began negotiations with the court-appointed mediator Daniel Pollack in the country’s dispute with holdout hedgefunds yesterday will meet again with him on Friday.
“A follow up meeting has been scheduled for Friday, July 11,” Capitanich said in his daily press briefing at the Government House where he underscored Argentina’s willingness to pay its bondholders.
The Kirchnerite official reiterated the request made by the Economy Minister to Pollack yesterday to reinstate an injunction allowing Argentina to pay bondholders. “An stay is essential to create acceptable negotiating conditions for 100% of bondholders,” the Cabinet Chief said.
Capitanich referred to the statement released by the Special Master yesterday after the meeting and pointed out that both parties have identified the principal issues and have agreed to continue the talks.
