Little results from the Ibero-American Summit

What has come out of the meeting of Ibero-American countries in El Salvador?

Monday, November 3, 2008

The truth is a little bit of noise - but not much popular impact - and at least some nuts. What is certain is that nothing much as come out of it, besides the support by "developing" countries that will be represented a the next summit in Washington, pushing for the presence of Zapatero in the American capital. But the impression continue to be that there is not even a single, united voice in Latin America (at least not in Ibero-America) regarding the economic crisis which is affecting the various countries in the Americas in a very uneven manner.

Apparently, the leaders meeting in El Salvador this weekend have been unable to transmit sensible results, significant progress during the 18th meeting of Ibero-America, an event mainly paid for by Spain and which, in theory, Spain is the countries which is most interested in it.
