Argentine envoys ordered to leave

August 19, 2009|TIMES WIRE REPORTS

Honduras' interim government ordered Argentine diplomats to leave the country in three days, sending a defiant message before a visit by six foreign ministers who are seeking the restoration of ousted President Manuel Zelaya.

The Foreign Ministry said the diplomats were ordered to leave in response to Argentina's decision to expel the Honduran ambassador, who has recognized the government of interim President Roberto Micheletti. It was another sign that Micheletti will not budge on international demands that Zelaya be reinstated.

Argentine Foreign Minister Jorge Taiana dismissed the expulsion order.
