Argentina is required to pay the funds for defaulted bonds by the end of June.

Wednesday’s hearing comes two days after the U.S. Supreme Court refused to intervene in the order.

Economy Minister Axel Kicillof said Tuesday that the government is "starting to take steps to begin a debt swap" to service the country’s restructured debt in "Argentina and under Argentine law." A federal judge said the plan would violate his orders.

The dispute stems from Argentina’s record $100 billion default on its national debt in 2001.
