    Mercosur and Unasur can't agree on a statement of support for Dilma Rousseff

    “We do not interfere in the internal affairs of countries” stated the Paraguayan foreign minister Eladio Loizaga

    The attempt by Uruguay to draft a strong Mercosur and Unasur resolution in support of embattled Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff has foundered. Argentina is only prepared to express support for Brazil's institutions while Chile and Paraguay have balked at the idea of personalizing the issue in Rousseff and her Workers Party.

    Brazilian situation shows division among Unasur members

    Uruguay is promoting a declaration demanding 'respect for the mandate and government of president Dilma Rousseff', said foreign minister Rodolfo Nin Novoa.

    Unasur, the Union of South American Nations is divided on how to address the Brazilian situation: while Uruguay, Venezuela, Ecuador and Bolivia have agreed on a strong statement in support of president Dilma Rousseff, Argentina expressed 'institutional support' and Chile abstained.
