No meeting is scheduled on Monday between Argentina and the court-appointed mediator in New York in its debt dispute with creditors but talks continue, a government source said on Sunday.

Argentina, Latin America's third-largest economy, has for years fought the "holdout'' hedge funds which snapped up its junk bonds after its $100 billion default in 2002 and then refused the restructuring terms, suing for repayment in full.
