No official US response after Sullivan diplomatic row - Capitanich

Cabinet chief Jorge Capitanich said there has been no formal response from the US government following Argentina’s dispute with interim ambassador in Buenos Aires Kevin Sullivan over an alleged “intrusion into domestic affairs”. He also ratified its criticism against Washington for its responsibility for Judge Thomas Griesa’s ruling in favour of Argentina’s holdout creditors.

“The US response was silence,” Capitanich said in his daily press briefing at government house. The official reiterated once again the government’s allegation of Obama Administration’s accountability for Griesa’s ruling.

“I would like to ratify our country’s stance,” the chief of ministers said. “Argentina condemns (Sullivan’s) comments for a very simple reason: Argentina honours its commitments and pays. We reject any talk of default on its debt,” he added.

US Charge d’Affaires Sullivan had urged Argentina to “exit default as soon as possible” in an interview on Monday, sparking the government’s indignation that lead to threat to expel the diplomat from the country.
