Chavez Will Be in Brazil for Venezuela’s Integration Ceremony into Mercosur

Hugo Chavez Hugo Chavez, the president of Venezuela, informed that he talked with Dilma Rousseff, the Brazilian president and that she  confirmed the invitation to him to participate in an extraordinary meeting of Mercosur next July 31 in Rio do Janeiro, when Venezuela will be officially integrated into the Mercosur.

“I’ve had a most satisfying chat with President Dilma, our most beloved compañera. She confirmed I’m invited to the Mercosur summit,” said Chavez on Friday in his Twitter@chavezcandanga.

The message is followed by a second in which he asserts, “Venezuela to Mercosur! This is really GREAT! A new Venezuela! A new South America! New Geopolitics!”

Last Tuesday Chavez confirmed he would be traveling to Rio for the formal incorporation of Venezuela as full member of Mercosur (Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay), even when Paraguay was suspended from the group last June following the removal of Fernando Lugo, who was replaced by Federico Lugo.

Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay at the end of last June in a controversial decision agreed to suspend Paraguay and admit the incorporation of Venezuela which was pending for several years and blocked precisely by the Paraguayan Senate. All Mercosur decisions are supposed to be taken by consensus.
