Argentina has been declared “Not Compliant” with the Hague Abduction Convention in the U.S. State Department's latest annual report on compliance with the Convention.

In the previous year it was merely listed as a country having “enforcement concerns.”  Indeed the State Department reports that, it “is not aware of any successfully enforced order for return from Argentina to the United States since 2006.”
