    “Argentine ambassador in Brasilia Luis Maria Kreckler said that the success of the negotiations conducted by the Ministry of Commerce, the Embassy of Argentina in Brazil and the Ministry of Agriculture, is the result of a commitment from both governments to give priority to dialogue and confirmation of the strategic relation between both countries.”

    What she should have said was “TMBOA screaming fit has calmed down now and she has decided her arbitary ban on Brasil was a cock-up and we have had to back down.”

    No other place to post this, but I just saw The Argentina delegation canceled their trip to Tokyo for the annual IMF/WB/IDB meeting!

    Which means:

    1 they've given up and expulsion is a foregone conclusion
    2 they don't want to be embarrassed in person when the subject is discussed.

    I wonder what IDB/WB loans were included in the 2013 budget that can't be made up any other way.

    the Brazukas know the argies very well, it's all about business. It's like Eastern European countries who have Russia as a neighbor. They don't like Russians, but they have to live with them. Although i don't think Brazil really needs Argentina like many European countries are dependent of Russian gas etc..even Germany.

  • Hepatia So, its nothing like “Eastern European countries who have Russia as a neighbor.” Is that what you are trying to say?

    With all the pesticides and false chemical colouring the RGs put on their crops, the Brazilians are welcome to the fruit. Hope that doesn't include the poisoned lemons. Wouldn't wish those on anyone.

    All food is toxic in Argentina. You can taste there's something wrong with it. One of the most common reasons why people don't go to work is because of stomach problems. Although it's quite normal in Argentina not go to work. If it's rainy, that's enough of a reason not to bother.

  • Hepatia From your post it is clear that you are confused. I'm just trying to help you organize your thoughts.

    Its also clear that you cannot spell. Would you like some help with that?
