A long-awaited meeting that was set for next Tuesday between US President Joe Biden and his Argentine counterpart, Alberto Fernandez, has been postponed due to Biden’s positive Covid-19 test Thursday. 

A US official said the meeting was postponed as Biden isolates during his recovery from a Covid-19 case. The governments aren’t yet ready to announce a new date for the meeting, according to officials from both administrations who asked not to be identified.
