President Evo Morales announced that it will be carried out, in Bolivia, an international event to discuss the military interventionism in the Latin America.
According to him, the North American military presence in the region represents interference in the process of Latin-American integration.
Evo Morales affirmed that where the North American military bases are, there won´t be integration.
In his evaluation, the presence of North American soldiers in the Latin America, which has as pretext the struggle against the drug trafficking and the terrorism, hides the wish of controlling the natural resources of the region.
For the Bolivian, the Colombian military bases that will be used by the United States constitute a threat for the whole South America.
He also blamed the country for the coup d´etat in Honduras, in June of 2009.
