Intanto in Bolivia

Ecco un altro tassello dei movimenti che in America Latina stanno precedendo le elezioni del nuovo presidente americano. Tutto indica che il dossier dei rapporti tra nord e sud america avrà bisogno di essere ripreso rapidamente in mano dal nuovo inquilino della Casa Bianca. Se sarà Obama molti si augurano che la distanza tra le due parti del continente cessi di crescere, come ha fatto in questi anni di strategia muscolare e inconcludente.


LA PAZ, Bolivia (AP) — President Evo Morales of Bolivia on Saturday suspended antidrug operations sponsored by the United States as Washington’s relations with his leftist government spiraled downward. Mr. Morales accused the United States Drug Enforcement Administration of espionage and of financing “criminal groups” trying to undermine his government. (…) Relations between Bolivia and the United States have deteriorated in recent months as Mr. Morales’s government limited activities by the D.E.A. and later expelled the United States ambassador over charges of spying and involvement in protests. (…) The United States in turn added Bolivia to its antinarcotics blacklist, causing a cut in trade preferences. (…) The United Nations estimates that Bolivia’s coca crop increased by 5 percent in 2007 — far below the 27 percent jump recorded in Colombia, a close ally of the United States.
