Argentina: No conflict with US over seized cargo

Argentina's economy minister says his country has no conflict with Washington despite their dispute over the seizure of undeclared U.S. military cargo brought to Buenos Aires for a police training course.

But Amado Boudou says he finds it strange when some sectors act "as if it is a problem that Argentina enforces its laws."

Boudou's comments on the radio program "La Red" followed a tweet Wednesday in which U.S. State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said: "We want our stuff back."

Crowley says Argentina's government hasn't responded to several U.S. diplomatic notes about the dispute.
