Map of VenezuelaOnce again US imperialism and its "Triple Alliance", formed by the governments of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay, seeks to reissue "a kind of Operation Condor" against the homeland of Simon Bolivar.

On this occasion they try to stop the full exercise of its presidency pro tempore of the Southern Common Market MERCOSUR under the invention of a fraudulent claim, through which they mask the illegal proceeding based on the false assumption of vacuum in the Presidency Pro Tempore.

This claim is clearly fictional and fraudulent, since our country legally exercises its legal right of President Pro Tempore, starting on July 29, with its rights and duties, as it has duly informed the States’ Members by NOTE PPTV 01/2016.

This Triple Alliance, formed by Argentina, Brasil and Paraguay governments harasses and criminalizes our model of development and democracy, producing an aggression that does not hesitate in destroying the institutional basis and legality of MERCOSUR.

Behind this plan are those who have always conspired against the South American union in order to impose the Washington Consensus in the false conviction that it is time to get rid of the Bolivarian Revolution. It is the Triple Alliance of the right-wingers and the Condor Plan against Boliviarianism and socioeconomic achievements of our people.

Retrogressive and neoconservative forces try to bring back the disastrous neoliberal policies that plunged the peoples of the South into poverty, misery, inequality and the restrictions on their human rights. This serves as an alert to the people of MERCOSUR against the lies of the enemies of integration and unity of our region, who disregard, with their duplicities and omissions, the letter and the spirit of this common history, in which the workers have a leading role.

The people of Venezuela, evoke as unequivocal guidance for the exercise of the Pro Tempore Presidency of MERCOSUR, based on the thoughts of President Hugo Chavez, who commented: "That is why today we are in that exact historical perspective, this is our world, our place in history, this is our place, this is our essence, South America and within this great homeland the Mercosur as a great engine. Venezuela reaches the Mercosur completely, with all our passion, will and desire to integrate with dignity into a new mechanism of integration that goes beyond trade."
