Unasur ministers to discuss US sanctions against Venezuela

The ministers of the Unasur member countries will gather tomorrow in Montevideo, Uruguay, to discuss the latest round of US sanctions against Venezuela, Ecuador’s Foreign Minister Ricardo Patiño announced today.

“Unasur chancellors we meet tomorrow in Montevideo to study Obama’s decision on Venezuela,” wrote Patiño on his Twitter account. “The birthplace of the Liberator is to be respected,” he added in reference to Latin American liberation hero Simón Bolívar.

The meeting was scheduled to prepare next week’s Unasur Summit, but it will now be used to discuss Obama’s move against Venezuelan president Nicolás Maduro.

Ecuador’s leader Rafael Correa spoke about Unasur’s role in the escalation of tensions between Washington and Caracas, pledging a regional response to “the grotesque, insolent, illegal, outrageous and unjustified US interference in Venezuela’s affairs.”
