[/url]

Argentina yesterday urged the US "not to meddle" in its domestic affairs after Washington complained about the Argentine government’s having allowed Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez to head an anti-Bush rally earlier this month when US President George W. Bush was visiting Uruguay.

"It is not he (US State Department’s Under-Secretary for Political Affairs Nicholas Burns) who can tell the President of the Argentine people (Néstor Kirchner) whether he can allow (the rally) or not," Interior Minister Aníbal Fernández said.

Burns on Thursday reproached Argentine Ambassador to Washington José Octavio Bordón for the March 9 rally in which Chávez called Bush "a political corpse" at a Buenos Aires stadium.
