South American leaders rally over Argentinian debt

Bishkek (AKIpress) - 101877525-452080184.530x298 South American leaders have rallied behind Argentine President Cristina Fernandez, who is locked in a legal battle with holdout investors that could trigger a debt default this week, Reuters reports.

The standoff figured prominently at the Mercosur bloc's meeting in Caracas on Tuesday, with heads of state castigating the holdouts as speculators menacing the entire region.

Argentina has until late Wednesday to either pay out or reach a deal with the hedge funds that are suing for full payment on their bonds to avert a second default in little over a decade in Latin America's No. 3 economy.

While Fernandez was in Venezuela on Tuesday, Argentine debt negotiators met in New York with a court-appointed mediator for last-gasp negotiations to cut a deal.
