Argentina expels Honduran putschist ambassador

For anyone who doubts if Argentina is truly committed to democracy, doubt no longer. The proof is in:

Argentina has expelled the Honduran ambassador over her support for a coup that ousted Honduran President Manuel Zelaya, the foreign ministry announced Thursday.

“At the request of the constitutional President of Honduras, Manuel Zelaya the Argentine foreign ministry ordered the cessation of functions of the Honduran Ambassador to Buenos Aires, Carmen Eleonora Ortez Williams”, it said in a statement.

Ortez voiced support for interim leader Roberto Micheletti, who is not recognized by the international community, the Argentine statement added.

Argentina said it would communicate with Honduras through the Honduran embassy in Washington.

Argentina’s President Cristina Kirchner has been among the staunchest defenders of Zelaya’s right to return to power unconditionally.

And may I remind you that she’s not the only president of a big LatAm country to recognize only Zelaya as the legitimate president?
