Morales urges Mercosur to fight inequality in South America

Evo Morales points out that the member countries of the Common Market of the South (Mercosur) should move towards solidarity trade and fight against inequality.

"We attended the LIII Summit of Heads of State of Mercosur and Associated States in Uruguay, with the conviction that we must build together, from the hand of our peoples, a trade model based on solidarity and complementarity, to combat inequality" , declared the president of Bolivia on Tuesday through his Twitter account .

Morales also defended the need to strengthen the countries of the bloc and gave his opinion on the economic panorama of the peoples. In the same way, the president also advocated the unity and integration of the peoples of the region.

"It would be good to build a space for our economists and planners to meet to discuss, to prevent and avoid economic problems in our countries, always respecting the different economic models," Morales added in the same media.

In turn, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Uruguay, Rodolfo Nin Novoa, expressed his satisfaction with the countries that make up the bloc. "Two or three years ago we had a really interesting, exceptional dynamic," the diplomat said at a meeting with his counterparts in Montevideo.

The LIII Summit of Heads of State of Mercosur and Associated States was held in Montevideo, the Uruguayan capital, with the participation of the presidents of Brazil, Paraguay, and Argentina, as well as the Bolivian president and Chilean Foreign Minister, Roberto Ampuero.

Mercosur represents the equivalent of the fifth largest economy in the world, with a gross domestic product (GDP) of 2.7 trillion dollars.
