    Argentina should be expelled for not acting constitutionally, they did it to Paraguay when they WERE acting in accordance with their constitution so TDC should be no problem.

    Mercosur is dead in the water at the moment and I do not expect anyone to give it the kiss of life.

    At least Vasquez is attempting to trade with Peru unlike 'No Money Pepe' our failed Tupa president.

    Uruguay is going in the right direction. Chile's embrace of the free market has been the primary reason for our economic success as well as having now the highest per capita income in Latin America. Columbia, Panama and Peru have also embraced free trade agreements and they have currently the fastest growing economies. Chile has given Paraguay and offered Uruguay free port privileges at our Pacific ports.

    ”Mercosur must exhaust efforts with determination to advance in trade negotiations with the European Union, ...)

    Surely they must be 'exhausted' already? It's been 15 years and this bunch of muupets still haven't come to a collective agreement that will get a deal with the EU.
    MercoSur should disband. It has failed its remit. It has failed its people. It is a ghost.
