    Does this really matter? Who in the European Union is going to buy mercosur products? Contaminated, unsafe meat. I won't even buy from New Zealand because of its slaughter policy! Contaminated fruit. Why does the U.S. object to latam lemons? Is it the yellow paint? Vegetables? What does latam know about vegetables? Chrysanthemums. Why doesn't Mujica grow potatoes?

    .... Free Trade with Mercosur?
    Has Venezuela paid the international airlines the $4.5 billion + still outstanding?
    High possibility that Venezuela will default next month.
    Argentina still trying to squirm out of debt obligations and currently in default.
    EU Free Trade with Mercosur?

    Good Luck with that....
