BUENOS AIRES Aug 1 Argentina's Cabinet chief
Jorge Capitanich said on Friday the government held no
expectations for a positive outcome at a court hearing in New
York later in the day that will discuss the South American
country's debt default.
The government maintains it has not defaulted because it
made a required interest payment on one of its bonds. But U.S.
District Judge Thomas Griesa blocked that deposit in June,
saying it violated his ruling that Argentina settle their
dispute with holdout investors first.
Judge Griesa is scheduled to hold the hearing at 11 a.m.
