Unasur Pledges to Isolate Coup Regimes, Fight Drug Trafficking

Presidents from the Union of South American Nations, known as Unasur, agreed to coordinate efforts to fight drug trafficking and to isolate governments that emerge from coups, Ecuador’s President Rafael Correa said.

Unasur members met today during the fourth summit in Georgetown, Guyana, where Correa passed on the temporary presidency to that country’s President, Bharrat Jagdeo. The bloc didn’t propose names for a new secretary general to replace Nestor Kirchner, Argentina’s former president who died last month.
