Argentine cabinet chief offers to resign-reports
A top aide to Argentina's president, Cabinet chief Alberto Fernandez, offered to resign on Wednesday in political fallout after the government backed down on a plan to raise a tax on soy exports, media reported.

Television channels TodoNoticias, America and Channel 26 said Fernandez handed in his resignation, but it was unclear whether President Cristina Fernandez accepted it.

A government official contacted by Reuters could not confirm the Cabinet chief's current status.
