Telam, the state-run news agency, said the government's resolution will be published on Monday. The National Civil Aviation Administration (ANAC) did not immediately reply to a request for comment. ANAC "has proposed to temporarily ground and even prevent flights in Argentine territory of all types of aircraft Boeing 737 MAX 8 and 737 Max 9 immediately and until the investigation into the most recent accident concludes with justification for lifting the measure," the government's resolution said, according to Telam.
On Wednesday, the governments of Mexico, Panama and Colombia suspended the operations of the Boeing 737 MAX aircraft. (Reporting by Maximilian Heath; Writing by Cassandra Garrison; Editing by Simon Cameron-Moore)
