Uruguay: Chavez’ Visit

Categories: Latin America, Uruguay, Venezuela, Environment, International Relations

From Uruguay takes a look at Hugo Chavez’ recent visit to Uruguay [1] and writes, “in my opinion the entrance of Venezuela benefits Uruguay for sure in the short term. It provides a new actor in the Mercosur scene that will shake the Brazilian-Argentinean hegemony of power in the block, giving the smaller members a greater chance to be heard on their claims, plus it's always good to have a friend with plenty of spare oil.”
