MARCO WERMAN: And I've just got time to share some happy news with you. The Great Tango Dispute has been resolved. You know, the great tango dispute? It boils down to this. Argentina said it was born in Buenos Aires; Uruguayans said the music had its origins in Montevideo. For years, the dispute darkened diplomatic relations between the two countries. No longer, though ï¿½ a truce has been declared. Both nations want Tango to be granted World Heritage status. That's confirmed by Unesco, the cultural arm of the United Nations. And to increase their chances, they've joined forces. So Argentina and Uruguay are making nice and sharing their claim to tango. After all, it does take two... oh, you know the rest. Whatever.
