Actualité - Chavez Invokes Latin American Unity

Franc-Parler publie une dépêche de Prensa Latina News Agency à propos d'une rencontre trilatérale entre le Venezuela, le Brésil et l'Argentine. La construction d'un pipeline, le plus long au monde, à travers le continent sud-américain a été décidée. Le président Hugo Chavez a lancé un appel à l'unité des peuples pour la souveraineté.

Sao Paulo, Apr 27 (Prensa Latina) - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has called for unity as the only way to gain independence for South American countries.

Addressing the press after a trilateral meeting held in the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo on Wednesday, along with presidents Luiz Inacio Lula Da Silva (Brazil) and Nestor Kirchner (Argentina), Chavez stressed the need for integrating Latin American countries as a bloc.

The Venezuelan leader said that some of the first proposals for integration were not materialized, but he praised the progress reached in other projects, such as TELESUR, PETROSUR and the South Bank.

Chavez added that the South Gas Pipeline plan is already devised and air and land studies are being carried out.

Concerning the price with which the gas will be marketed, the Venezuelan president said it has not been fixed yet, but he assured it will be very cheap.

Washington had held Venezuela's reserves as its own, said Chavez, to maintain its capitalist system promoted by the consumerism.

The Venezuelan leader recalled that the US consumes 20 million oil barrels per day, which is crazy since it only produces 8 million.
