    Mercosur has no raison d’être if members go rogue according Argentine Foreign Ministry top official

    Lacalle's words were inappropriate while Mercosur was celebrating its 30th anniversary, said Chaves

    In the aftermath of Friday's presidential clash between Alberto Fernández and Uruguay's Luis Lacalle Pou over the Mercosur's alleged lack of “flexibility,” Argentine Foreign Ministry's Cabinet Chief Guillermo Chaves said Saturday in a radio interview that the bloc's fundamental identity was to negotiate jointly on behalf of all members, but if each partner was allowed to hold deals individually, the association would lose its raison d'être.
