Chávez warns South American presidents

Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez rides a horse during his weekly broadcast "Alo Presidente".

Just a day before the start of the South American Nation's Union (UNASUR) meeting in the city of Bariloche, Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez addressed the presidents of the South Cone region through a letter published on a local newspaper in which Chávez warns of the settlement of the seven US military bases in Colombia.

"These bases are part of a political and military plan to undermine the UNASUR project, and the biggest menace for the endless and precious richness that the South American soil contains."

Chávez los confessed to be "truly worried" for the tense-up situation that has been set with the "close and beloved neighbor" of Colombia.

Likewise, the Caribbean president remarked that "the bases are a threat for the peace, independency, and the rights of the people of Venezuela as well all the regional countries."

Chávez also encouraged the UNASUR members to "show clarity and bravery to face, as a block, this menace that compromise the future of our nations and the entire humanity."
