Argentina, Venezuela ratify association of natural gas producers
Published in Saudi Press Agency on 09 - 03 - 2007


Argentine President Nestor Kirchner and his
Venezuelan counterpart Hugo Chavez ratified Friday in Buenos Aires
their intention to create an organization of countries which produce
and export Natural gas, according to dpa.
The agreement came on the same day that Brazil and the United
States signed in Sao Paulo a memorandum of understanding to promote
the production and use of ethanol across Latin America and the world.
US President George W Bush is currently in Brazil, on the first
leg of a regional tour that will also take him to Uruguay, Colombia,
Guatemala and Mexico.
Outspoken US critic Chavez and Kirchner, both leftists, signed a
series of economic, scientific and technological agreements, and
declared that such plans "are strategic elements that are forming the
second national independence."
"We have to become great gas producers once again. We are going to
recover positions together, with the help of Bolivia, Ecuador, Brazil
and all of us who can work jointly," Kirchner said in the
presidential residence in Olivos. "This is crucial because it will
give us natural gas for growth at adequate levels."
Chavez too defended energy independence and also spoke of the
productive transformation for his country.
"Venezuela (was about) exporting oil and importing the rest. And
that is where the great disequilibriums, not only economic but also
social and territorial come from," he said.
Chavez is set to participate in a mass rally at a football stadium
in Buenos Aires on Friday night, before flying to Bolivia on
Saturday.
