BUENOS AIRES, March 18 (Reuters) - Argentina will not allow Citigroup Inc to exit its local custody business, a senior government source said on Wednesday, a day after the bank said it planned to do so after a U.S. judge refused the bank permission to process some sovereign debt payments.

"There is no way we will let them exit their (custody) business," a senior government source familiar with the president's view on the matter said. (Reporting by Jorge Otaola; Writing by Richard Lough; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
