Latin American Agreement

Spain continues paying to the invoice of the neopreservative turn and the unconditional alignment with the United States that characterized to the Spanish foreign policy during the presidency of Jos Maria Aznar, breaking the effective consensuses from the transition. The visit of the ambassadors Spanish and American to endorse to self-proclaimed, and the ephemeral one, president Pedro Carmona, on the occasion of the coup d’etat in Venezuela of 2002, served as pretext president Chvez to bring about a confrontation with Spain in the Latin American Summit of Santiago of Chile, that, like little the opportune answer of King Juan Carlos, is functional to its mediatic strategy. The cost is not despicable: the holders been have occupied by that dispute, and little or nothing has gone beyond the important results of the Summit, between which a Potable Water Bottom is included that will count with 1,000 million Euros, the program of postgraduate scholarships Pablo Neruda, a forward base of answer to disasters in Panama, and the Latin American Agreement of Social Security, instrument of great relevance before the increasing weight of Latin American immigration towards Spain. Although the strategy of containment of damages that have unfolded both governments in later days to the Summit has appeased the controversy, the happened thing in Santiago also is a warning for navigators with respect to the celebration of the bicentennials of the independence of Latin America. It is very probable that the action of Spain, passed and present, returns to be the easy argument to which will resort to avoid the responsibilities of the Creole elites in the present problems of the region. In the relations with Latin America a double considers challenge. On the one hand, to put together the relations, damaged during the Aznar period, and on the other, to adapt them to the important changes that the region has lived in recent years.
