Uruguayan president Jose Mujica has plans to meet two, probably three times before the end of the year with his peer from Venezuela, Hugo Chavez to address “a real integration” of Mercosur, not limited to trade, but at the same time admitting that Venezuela is rapidly becoming one of the main markets for Uruguayan exports.

    Mujica seems to be getting ready to remove Uruguay from the stranglehold of Mercosur “we might have to change some rules and documents, and try to release from some the free trade agreements we have or don’t have with other members and third parties”.

    Excellent move, let Dead Man Walking Chavez go and play at Emporers elsewhere.

    Chris, you must be a CIA troll. You cannot actually believe what you write. From now on that is how you will be perceived here. Nothing but a CIA troll. You will need to change you pseudonym now, but we will watch for you and call you out.

    Aaaah, Mujica. A true cowardly wimp and traitor. Never mind, Uruguay, you had a few years of being a “country”. Will you be a province of argieland or brazil? Britain gave you your chance. And there was a time we thought you had some balls. 1939/40. Lost 'em, haven't you?

    @2 Chris
    Dont encourage Wurzel Guzzage alias beta vulgaris. The poor fellow is living in Denmark on $1560 uruguayan a month. So he needs some extra euros to live. How much does he get paid for each blog from the RG govt? Dunno.Dont take his income away from him!
    He hates Uruguay and even if the news is good he is a dog in the manger
    Wurzels belong in a clamp like the Rg policy on free currency conversion.Perhaps he aint an Uruguayan at all but a Swede from his postings. Well Swedes v Manglewurzels? Both stored in a clamp for winter fodder - or in a dollar clamp?
    Seems to be obsessed with pimples on his bot. Suggest as a cure he sit on a bacon slicer. Order to the delli -no Danish bacon this week thank you

    “From now on that is how you will be perceived here. Nothing but a CIA troll. You will need to change you pseudonym now, but we will watch for you and call you out.”

    Oooohhhrrr! I am so frightened by you! Ha, ha, ha to the power googol (if you have ANY idea what that means).

    I have the gist of you though, have you:

    1) not read the article?;
    2) OR (more likely) cannot understand the language of diplomacy?

    So doing a little check on you, have you (I bet you have not)

    By itself, and specially because of its wealth, Venezuela's inclusion into Mercosur works as something of a counterweight to the Brazil-Argentina axis. It thus benefits small countries like Uruguay and, if not for the membership suspension, Paraguay.

    More good news to Mercosur, looks like Obama wins Ohio AND Florida... Now, I'm not an expert on US elections, but aren't those 2 states kind of crucial swing-states? ;)

    @9 Progress? How to turn a once prosperous and happy country into shite. Minor, meaningless, hopeless waffle from “Pepe le pew”. The cowardly wimp.
    @10 Blind incompetent. Or is that blindingly incompetent? CFK loves licking Porky's rear end. Now it's a three-way “axis”. Has Porky got the strength to cope with a three-way? Hopefully, they'll hasten his end!
    @14 With a bit of luck, with another 4 years, Obama will remember CFK's lack of respect for the US, argieland's lack of respect for US law and courts and argieland's attempts to bring the US financial system into disrepute. I don't understand his problem. Britain beat the shite out of the cowards. What a good idea for the US Fourth Fleet to reinforce and support the Royal Navy! 200 years and they still have to learn what can be achieved with a single state-of-the-art destroyer. And, maybe, a submarine.

    #16 Was there any purpose to your comment apart from being obscene?
