Inaugurated in December of 2004, the Union of the South American Nations (Unasur), which became a regional block in May of 2008, had his Constitutive Treaty ratified by only six of the twelve countries that integrate it.
Argentina, Bolivia, Ecuador, Guyana, Peru and Venezuela approved the Treaty, which, to invigorate, must be ratified by at least nine countries.
In Brazil, the proposal was removed of the voting list in 13 sessions, after approved by the thematic commissions of the Chamber of the Deputies.
Before being ratified, the message has to be approved also by the Federal Senate.
The difficulty in seeing the institutionalization of Unasur concluded caused the election of the Argentinian ex-president, Néstor Kirchner, as Secretary-general, on May 4.
This Tuesday, Kirchner was in Santiago to discuss the ratification of the Treaty with Chilean parliamentarians.
He already visited Ecuador and Paraguay and this week he will be in Peru and Bolivia. The visit of Kirchner to Brazil isn´t discarded.
The Secretary-general wants to accelerate the formalization of the Treaty to begin the discussions about the sources of the mechanism financing.
In August, the Chiefs of State and of Government of the Unasur meet in Guyana, country that will receive from Ecuador the presidency pro tempore of the block.
