Argentina

From the Eizenstat Report:

"In the case of Argentina, no negotiations regarding the identification and disposition of German external assets were undertaken in the months immediately following the end of the war--or at any time.

The United States set about to establish more friendly relations following the criticisms contained in the State Department "Blue Book" on Argentina in early 1946. American officials concluded that German assets were not identifiable by the Argentine Government and no looted gold had reached Buenos Aires."

Argentina has created an historical commission to look into its relationship with Nazi Germany and the theft and disposition of valuables from Hitler's victims.
