    The Argentinian government made a decision to allow RT channel’s Spanish service continue its broadcast in Argentina as part of the free national coverage, the broadcaster said on its website on Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — In June, Argentina's state media authority RTA SE announced that RT Spanish would be excluded from free transmission starting in August, but would nonetheless remain in paid TV packages.

    According to RT, representatives of the broadcaster and Argentinian officials reached an agreement to implement joint projects and to exchange television production after a meeting on July 15.

    The broadcaster added that within the framework of the reached accords, RT Spanish would not be suspended from Argentina's free transmission.

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