    It could easily be argued that Venezuela's admittance to Mercosur was not legal. I really cannot see them complying by Friday.

    Agreed, but Friday should be interesting... if not predictable.

    From above, in pertinent part, “but has yet to incorporate 400 norms and 50 accords to be recognized as full member”.


    Best wishes everyone!

    Mercosur didn't have any scruples to ilegally block Parguay 2 years ago. What their problem with this joke of nation called Venezuela now?

    Looks like VZ's time as a full member of Mercosul is reaching its end.

    Remember, 2 years ago, Argentina and Brazil were governed by left-wing idiots, who fully supported Maduro and VZ....Since then, things have changed.
