Argentina to request 'stand-by' deal from IMF -Treasury Ministry

BUENOS AIRES, May 9 (Reuters) - Argentina will request a “stand-by” financing arrangement from the International Monetary Fund as the country seeks a deal to calm volatile financial markets, the Treasury Ministry said in a statement on Wednesday.
