“With the return of Argentina and Brazil to UNASUR, our region strengthens its geopolitical gravitation before the US that has governments that think that God put them to rule the world. The 200 years of the ill-fated Monroe Doctrine should begin the extinction of Yankee interventionism,” the former president tweeted.
Morales affirmed in another message that this event is an opportunity for the Bolivian head of State, Luis Arce, “to take advantage of the new boost of UNASUR and negotiate with China to make the Bi-Oceanic Train a reality.”
By virtue of Decree 11.475, promulgated last Thursday by the Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula Da Silva, Brazil will formally return to UNASUR, thus ratifying the constitutive treaty of that integrationist forum signed in Brasilia on May 23, 2008.
According to regulations, the reincorporation will take effect externally on May 6, 2023, although it will be finalized at a summit of heads of State of the region to be held in Brasilia in late May.
The resumption of Brazil’s participation was one of the campaign proposals of Lula, who always defended the political alliance and cooperation of the countries of this area of the world.
By decision of former President Jair Bolsonaro, Brazil formally left the bloc in April 2019, and after its departure, other states ruled at that time by authorities in favor of neoliberal policies, such as Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Uruguay and Paraguay, withdrew.
