President of Argentina calls to recover Unasur
Buenos Aires, Oct 21 (Prensa Latina) Argentine President Alberto Fernández today called for recovering the Union of South American Nations (Unasur), as the most convenient for Latin America, he said.
In dialogue with the station El Uncover Radio, the president also reported good news, noting that they managed to recover the statue dedicated to the late former governor Néstor Kichner that was at the headquarters of Unasur in Quito, and had been removed by the president of Ecuador, Lenin Moreno.
'We recovered the statue of Néstor de Unasur and we hope on October 27 - when the first decade of his death is completed - to install it in the Kirchner Cultural Center and that it remains there forever,' said Fernández.
Regarding Unasur, the Argentine head of state advocated the need to relaunch that regional organization, after almost being dismantled by governments of the right.
On the other hand, he referred to the electoral victory last Sunday of the Movement to Socialism (MAS), and announced that he would like to be present at the presidential inauguration of Luis Arce and accompany Evo Morales on his return to his country. He has been a political refugee for almost 11 months.
Fernández recalled that after the coup in Bolivia, Evo was persecuted by the de facto government of Jeanine Áñez, and they forced him into exile, as well as other political leaders of the MAS, such as former vice president Alvaro García Linera.
