    The RT-Spanish suspension in Argentina could be overturned, the nation’s minister in charge of media told Sputnik on Sunday.

    BUENOS AIRES (Sputnik) — The Argentinian government’s decision to take RT News channel’s Spanish service off air could be overturned, the nation’s minister in charge of media told Sputnik on Sunday.

    Argentina’s State Radio and Television Society (RTA SE) plans to exclude the international channel from free transmission starting in August but will keep it available in paid TV packages.

    "RT’s removal is not irrevocable," Media and Public Content Minister Hernan Lombardi said, adding the Argentinian government planned to discuss the channel's future with RT.

    RT Television’s Spanish-language channel was launched in Argentina as part of the Latin American country’s national broadcast in 2014.
