What a headache debts can cause. No one knows this better than Cristina Fernández, who after receiving mixed messages related to Argentina’s debt in recent days will have plenty to chew over on her transatlantic flight before she meets the Pope on Monday.
There was good news today when the Paris Club, a group of countries which Argentina owes about $10bn, invited their debtor to begin formal negotiations in May, after economy minister Axel Kicillof presented a repayment plan in January. Resolution of the Paris Club problem is not only a prerequisite for Argentina’s return to the international capital markets, but it could also help to get much-needed foreign investment flowing back into the country.

The US secretary of state John Kerry has said that the US will not file a brief in support of Argentina's petition for a hearing by the US supreme court in its legal battle with bond holdouts over the repayment of debts following Argentina's default in 2002.
Facing questions from Republican congressman Mario Díaz-Balart on Wednesday (Mar 12) as to whether the US will support Argentina in its legal battle with the holdouts, led by NML Capital, a unit of Elliott Management, Kerry's response was a very clear, "no we are not going to."
