BUENOS AIRES Aug 27 Argentina's government said
on Wednesday its long-term plan was to bring all its sovereign
debt governed by foreign law under Argentine legislation.
Latin America's No. 3 economy tipped into default on July 31
after a U.S. court prevented it from servicing debt held under
U.S. legislation until it had settled with a group of U.S.
investment funds suing the country over their bondholdings.
"The idea is to bring all of it under Argentine
jurisdiction," Carlos Zannini, a senior government official,
told a hearing of congressional committees.
