Mujica: ‘We must readjust Mercosur to make it work’
Uruguayan president José Mujica said today that members of the Mercosur agreement must readjust its legal framework ‘to make it work’.
“We have this system properly established but it doesn’t solve differences that arise between countries”, Mujica said to local press.
“We should face reality and accept that these mechanisms don’t actually work, and start building new ones that fit our needs”.
Last November, Uruguay settled a complaint at Mercosur against Argentina, who prohibited cargo transfers to Uruguayan ports. The organization hasn’t yet responded.
