Full article 27 comments

The Argentine ambassador to Uruguay, Dante Dovena, assured that authorities are “working intensely” in preparations for the next Mercosur summit scheduled to take place on June 28th in Montevideo. However news form Paraguay doesn’t indicate the same optimism and are demanding respect for ‘the country’s dignity and rule of the law”. Read full article

    Don't expect Mercosur to respect the rule of law, as pepe said.....politics is more important than the rule of law. Stick with PA and keep the bloc about trade and business, not politics of SA.

    You have to admire Paraguay. They have character and only demand respect.

    In a bid to gain Venezuela, will Mercosur end up losing Paraguay?

    And maybe even Uruguay?

    Two founding members lost to an organisation not even a year old?

    Paraguay is going to do what Argentina says, it is always been like that and it always will. If not, you can take take back the millón and so Paraguayan and their childs back to that disgunting place.

    Remember 1964. Next time, we are not going to be that nice.

    Actually Paraguay is a pleasant place to live in . No streets closed , on a daily basis, by protestors . No long speeches , in prime time , by the President . No threats to the press , written or visual .Ministers do not threaten businessmen by placing a pistol on the table .
    But , you are right , our dream is for all our countrymen to return home . As happened with Ireland .
    By the way what happened in 1964 . I know that we saved Peron in 1955 but 1964 .

    Warteiner is funny. Like many Argies he is either in denial or genially ignorant of his country’s demise.

    “Remember 1964. Next time, we are not going to be that nice.” – lol.

    Paraguay would be better off with the Pacific Alliance & let Mercosur regress to a bi-lateral treaty between Arg & Brazil with their closed protectionist policies

    Venezuela is quickly becoming a pariah state & it´s good to see at least one S.A. country questioning the legitimacy of Mad..duro!!

    come to PA, Paraguay. We DO respect you and the internal laws and sovereignity of each nation. You already overpassed the Argentina beef exports, you could continue increasing your production by selling your products via Chilean ports.

    @6: sorry, my mistake 1864. And if Paraguay is that nice, why the people of that country prefer to live in a house made of tin and cardboard instead of going to that ''dreamland'' ? No daily protest in this country anymore, get your facts right!

    @8: I think the one living in a dream is you, ugly native Alpaca Andina. And also you can tell your country men to go back to that disgunting place you call home, on the other side of the Cordillera, and stop coming here to suck our resources (healt, education, etc). I think they didn't realice that Chilindio is doing so good!...

    @9: The Pacific Alliance in the NARCOAliance...

    Oh yes, you will return, Paraguay.
    Sadly enough, the Brazilian influence, in real life and not by MP “lobbying”, is just too strong...

    warteiner is a child who comes from Cordoba and drinks that fizzy so called beer: Warsteiner is it, some crap like that.

    He appeared in photographs of a coach travelling somewhere in The Dark Country via a link in fb.

    Typical male adolescent: knows everything whilst at the same time knowing NOTHING.

    Best ignored.

    You think I am an:
    “ugly native Alpaca Andina”

    You are wrong on a few counts:

    1) I am a biped.
    2) Alpaca's are beautiful animals
    3) You say “ugly native”, I say “Hijo del sol luminoso, poderoso, talentoso, esa cría soy yo”.

    Now tell your countrymen to go back to that corrupt place you call home on the other side of the Atlantic and stop sucking up our resources.

    @14, sorry but I'm not an adolecent and I'm from Belgrano, Capital Federal. And Warsteiner and German Beer in general is much better than your shitty yeast fissy wáter that you drink, in fact, anything made in Germany is WAY better than your crappy stuff and also their woman are much more friendly and beautifull than the ugly fat drunken British woman.

    @15: You are a Biped? God, you evolved so fast! Hijo del sol (cose your Brown toast), talentoso? LOL... Poderoso? again, LOL!

    I'm sorry to tell you, but my country man are not the ones that go to Chilindio to get FREE education and cross the Andes risking their life's to get medical help.

    Suck it dude!

    The level of your English says enough about the quality of your education. ;)

    I do not care about my level of English, is not my language and do not really want to focus on it either, unlike you, aborigen, that thinks that English is everything.

    Well, again, ask your fellow country man and woman that flood our public Universities if their quality bad.

    It is evident that you do not care about your level of English. It is not my language either and for me it is nothing more than a means of communication.

    It is funny that you idolise Germany and you despise things that are truly American.

    Re education: you confuse quality with price. In life you get what you pay for. Chileans who want the best education and can afford it, study in the US or the UK. Chileans who have the academic ability but not the money to study abroad, study in Santiago, those who don’t make the academic grade study in the regions, those who don’t make the academic grade and don’t have money either don’t study or they go to Argentina to get a free and very inferior education.

    Chilean universities are not great, but in international rankings they have surpassed Argentine universities. Like I said 8, “Like many Argies he is either in denial or genially ignorant of his country’s demise. “ – the fact that you can only reply with poor language and racial insults is no coincidence.

    Where are the entertaining Argie trolls today?

    In your aboriginal dreams are your Universities better than ours. A lot of the Chileans that I know tell me about how superior is our educational system . For example thing that you see in UBA CBC, you will see it in the 1st or 2nd year of any Chilindian Uni. To go to school in Chilindio mean to get in debt for the rest of your life and also get a really pathetic education.

    So who shall I trust? A bunch of people that come here because the quality is better and is free or an aborigen from Mercopress who haven't got a clue about Argentina?...

    12 warteiner . So you still think that the Triple Alliance war was a “ good ” one ! Feel sorry for you , though it must be said that the Argentine occupiers were not as bad as the Brazilian .
    With regard to those living in poverty in Buenos Aires . Caused by the poverty and lack of employment here . But now moving nicely toward positive . Growth estimated at 13 percent this year . New buildings appearing all over the place . So much so that almost impossible to find a plumber or electrician to come to ones house ! So , with time , those who so wish will be able to return to a good job . And be treated as human beings .

    13 Stevie . Good to hear from you again ( not true but in a good mood ) . I take your point about the all poweful presence of Brazil . Thousands of them living here . A worrying fifth column . A long and dry border . A feeling that the dam is theirs , and only theirs . That is why it is so necessary to find new allies and friends . But we will do it , slowly but surely . The way we were treated in June last year will never be forgotten .

    So, if you are not a child why did you not deny the idiot with the black top who looks about 19 but was acting like a real twat in the picuter was NOT you?

    BTW Argentina DOES NOT HAVE ANY UNIVERSITY IN THE TOP 450 unlike Chile who does: two of them in fact!

    But like the little boy that you are you will claim you have 'the best education in SA' won't you?

    Where is you beloved and so-great UBA in the latest TOP 10 Latin American Universities, I cannot see it...
    Or do you assume it to be among the top univiersities, because Cristinita and your pathetic bananarepublic government wants you to believe it and has brainwashed you?

    Wow this guy is a whole new cake of fruit.

    Anyway back to the article. Paraguay seems to be realising that even small countries dominated by larger neighbours can chart an independent course.

    Seems Argentina and Brazil may have misjudged their actions and the success of the PA thrown into the mix was unforeseen.

    #4 “In a bid to gain Venezuela, will Mercosur end up losing Paraguay?”

    And which is a more valuable partner, oil rich, ideologically dynamic Venezuela or backward oligarchic Paraguay?!

    #6 “Actually Paraguay is a pleasant place to live in . No streets closed , on a daily basis, by protestors . No long speeches , in prime time , by the President”

    And, relatedly, the poor, in what is already a much poorer country, get no help or hope...

    Anyone read the food rationing story in Venezuela?

    http://news.yahoo.com/rationing-begin-venezuelan-state-172641854.html

    It's not rationing, it is about stopping contraband food!?!?!?!?!?!

    communism at it's finest.

    I wonder how fast Chevron's liquid assets will start moving out of Argentina?
