MERCOSUR 30th Anniversary Meeting Highlights Dissatisfaction With Argentine "Ballast" As President Lacalle Pou Confronts Argentine Despot Fernandez

Friday, March 26th, 2021

Montevideo At NightDuring a video conference substituting for a summit commemorating 30 years of MERCOSUR, President Luis Lacalle Pou clashed with Argentine despot Alberto Fernandez over the Argentine desire to close the bloc to any new trade agreements ever.

President Lacalle Pou's desire to open MERCOSUR to new trade agreements is supported by the leaders of Paraguay and Brasil while Fernandez sits alone in preventing the bloc and its members from entering any new agreements.

The video call ended without MERCOSUR members agreeing issue a traditional joint statement as Brazil's Bolsonaro and Uruguay's President Luis Lacalle Pou refused endorsing any statement without a commitment to opening the bloc's rules, but Argentina's Fernandez ended the video conference by offering that anyone who found present MERCOSUR rules too restrictive could "find another ship" and insisted that Argentina, with its collapsed economy, is more than just ballast burdening MERCOSUR's other members.
