Uruguay does not give up "a bit of sovereignty" in the FTA with Chile, says the chancellor

Uruguay does not give up "a bit of sovereignty" in the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) that signed with Chile and has not yet been ratified at the parliamentary level in either of the two nations, said Today, the Uruguayan Foreign Minister, Rodolfo Nin Novoa, is in the press.

Montevideo, Nov 23 (EFE) .- Uruguay does not give up "a bit of sovereignty" in the Free Trade Agreement (FTA) that it signed with Chile and that has not yet been ratified at the parliamentary level. Neither of the two nations, Uruguayan Foreign Minister Rodolfo Nin Novoa, told the press today.

The foreign minister pointed out that Uruguay "is full of reserves" in "essential and sensitive" areas. for the economy of the country that do not integrate the treaty such as telecommunications, the financial system and intellectual property.

"The trade agreement with Chile is very important because precisely the argument used by some detractors that the trade in services is not important with Chile, becomes evidence for the treaty to take effect, we need to promote the trade of services between the two parties, "explained Nin Novoa.

Likewise, the Uruguayan Foreign Minister recommended that the annexes of the FTA be read in depth and assured that" it would be a serious strategic error "for Uruguay that the treaty is not approved.

The sayings of the Minister of Foreign Affairs are due to the fact that some sectors of the left coalition that governs the country, the Frente Amplio (FA), would oppose approving the FTA in the Parliament.

Specifically, the FA sector led by former President José Mujica (2010-2015), the Participation Movement Popular (MPP), recently recommended through a report, not to vote the agreement with the trans-Andean country.

In addition, the Communist Party and the Casa Grande sector, also members of the FA, they showed their disagreement with the treaty.

Nin Novoa stressed that it would be "a very bad sign" for the entire world that the agreement does not materialize and that he is "the first" to defend the sovereignty of Uruguay.

"We are not going to bias in our effort to open Uruguay to the world because Uruguay is a country of 3 million inhabitants that produces goods, especially food, for 30 million, "said the chancellor.

In case Uruguay does not have competitive conditions to sell its production outside, the first affected" by these decisions wrong "will be the workers of" all that agro-industry that moves the national economy. "

The Governments of Uruguay and Chile signed the agreement on October 4, 2016 in Montevideo, although in neither of the two countries has the corresponding parliamentary sanction been given for its implementation.
