Maduro reaffirms his commitment to regional unity through Unasur

President Nicolás Maduro reaffirmed this Thursday his commitment to the unity of the region, regarding the 16th anniversary of the Union of South American Nations (Unasur).

“Convinced of continental union as an urgent necessity, we reaffirm the purposes that summoned us at that founding moment: peace, the rescue of identity, the stability and prosperity of the region,” the president expressed through X.

He assured that these principles - raised in the founding charter of the bloc, signed in 2008 - “continue to be a noble aspiration and just demand” of the people of South America.

The organization emerged in 2008 with the signing of the Unasur Constitutive Treaty, which came into force in 2011. Its objective is "to build a South American identity and citizenship and develop an integrated regional space

Between 2018 and 2020, various Latin American states, including Argentina and Brazil, then governed by presidents aligned to the right, decided to leave the bloc, stating that it was ideologized, so Unasur, in which only Guyana, Suriname, Bolivia, Venezuela and Peru, was effectively deactivated.

In 2023, Argentina, Brazil and Colombia announced their return to the organization, so representatives of these governments have held meetings to try to reactivate this group.
