Presidents of Venezuela, Argentina to Bolivia
by Prensa Latina
Presidents Hugo Chavez (Venezuela) and Cristina Fernandez (Argentina) are expected to travel to Bolivia on Tuesday, Bolivian Foreign Minister David Choquehuanca confirmed on Monday.
At a press conference, Choquehuanca explained that both presidents will meet with their Bolivian peer Evo Morales in the gas-rich southern city of Tarija.
Fernandez and Chavez are coming because of the energy agreement we have signed. We will also discuss how to strengthen relations among the three states, announced Choquehuanca.
However, he made clear to be still working on the agenda of the meeting, also including the construction of a plant to separate liquid from natural gas.
This summit comes as few days after a meeting among Morales, Chavez and Brazilian president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva in Riberalta, northern Bolivia, during which they signed agreements to improve road infrastructure in Bolivia and South America in general.
Chavez and Fernandez will come to Bolivia after meeting with Lula in Buenos Aires today.
