BUENOS AIRES (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 03rd February, 2021) The Argentinian presidential press service said on Tuesday that President Alberto Fernandez asked Russian President Vladimir Putin for Russia's assistance in restructuring Argentina's debt before the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
Fernandez and Putin spoke on the phone earlier in the day.
"The Argentinian president told Putin that the country was underway renegotiating the conditions of an agreement with the IMF and asked for Russia's support of Argentina's proposal," the press release read.
