NEW YORK (Reuters) - Settlement talks set for Wednesday between Argentina and bondholders who did not participate in the country's past debt restructuring have been rescheduled for Thursday, the court-appointed mediator said.

Daniel Pollack, a New York lawyer appointed to oversee the settlement discussions, had scheduled a meeting for 10 a.m. EDT after a U.S. judge ordered the parties to meet "continuously" until a deal is reached.

Pollack in a statement said he was advised by the Argentina delegation they could not get to New York for the Wednesday meeting. Pollack said the meeting has been re-scheduled for Thursday at 12:00 p.m. EDT.
