BUENOS AIRES, Argentina – Venezuela's foreign minister threatened to enter Argentina's foreign ministry through a window if necessary, but she still didn't get into a meeting of South American countries that suspended her nation from the Mercosur trade bloc.
Police were forced to intervene Wednesday after Delcy Rodriguez arrived at Argentina's foreign ministry in Buenos Aires.
Argentine Foreign Minister Susana Malcorra said at a news conference that Rodriguez was eventually allowed to enter, send tweets and "enjoy the building." But Malcorra says the Venezuelan was not allowed to attend the meeting and she told Rodriguez in person that Venezuela was not invited.
Venezuela was suspended from Mercosur earlier this month over what other member nations said was its failure to comply with commitments made when it joined the group in 2012.
