Integrator role of UNASUR is highlighted in Ecuador

Ecuador December 03rd.- The Union of South American Nations (Unasur) is a fundamental reference to strengthen economic, political and social unity of the region, said Wednesday Foreign Minister of Ecuador, Ricardo Patiño.

 

During the inauguration of an international seminar prior to the presidential summit of the bloc to be held today in this port city, the head of Ecuador's diplomacy added that the entity created six years ago in Brasilia it is also a functional tool to consolidate common agendas, reports PL.

 

Unasur is an essential reference to raise a sovereign relationship with vigor and strength with other states and regions on earth and to advance in the construction of a multipolar world, with just and peace, sentenced Patiño.

 

Recalling that the block formed by Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Ecuador, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, Uruguay and Venezuela emerged at a time when needs were urgent for the emancipation in South America, Ecuadorian Foreign Minister said that the potential of integration with the rest of the region are enormous.

 

The question, he said, will be to see how they can work together in a convergence of these areas of integration, he said.

 

Patiño also listed the achievements of the Unasur policy consultation and the efforts made to create mechanisms such as the Banco del Sur, the Escuela Suramericana of Defense, the Penal Court and the Technical Electoral Unit, but warned that there are still many challenges.

 

Among the challenges noted the eradication of poverty and the need to ensure energy sovereignty in the region with the use of renewable energy sources.

 

He also drew attention to the importance of having an own instance responsible for resolving disputes concerning investments, abolish monopolies, strengthen the democratization of communication, and promote the so-called Unitary System Regional Payments (Sucre), which is already used by some countries in the area.

 

On the first day of the international seminar on Integration and Convergence in South America also intervened the General Secretary of Unasur, Ernesto Samper, who agreed with Patiño on the need to relaunch the integration process, starting from convergence, complementarity and, solidarity.

 

The event serves as a prelude to the summit today in this port city, and the opening on Friday in the outskirts of Quito headquarters of the block, in a building avant-garde style built at a cost of 43 million dollars taken over by the Ecuadorian government

 

In the meeting of heads of State or government, Suriname will deliver to Uruguay the protempore presidency of Unasur, and will perform a tribute to Uruguayan President Jose Mujica, who early next year will leave the presidency of his country.
