Argentina on Monday accused the United States of being uncooperative with a probe into why undeclared weapons and drugs were sent the South American country on a US military aircraft last week.
The diplomatic spat went public after Buenos Aires authorities seized what they said were undeclared weapons and drugs, but US officials described it as routine equipment for training the Argentine federal police.

BUENOS AIRES, Argentina -- Argentina is accusing the U.S. military of trying to sneak guns and spy equipment into the country under the guise of providing a routine police training course -- a charge disputed Monday by a U.S. diplomat.
Argentine authorities say they seized nearly 1,000 cubic feet of undeclared equipment, describing it as machine guns and ammunition, drugs and spy equipment. It was on a U.S. Air Force C-17 cargo plane that landed Thursday with material for a training course that a U.S. Special Forces team had been invited to provide to Argentina's federal police.
