President of Uruguay, Tabare Vazquez
Uruguayan President Tabare Vazquez rejected on Friday the presence of foreign military bases in South America, and urged to resolve the differences among regional countries at the negotiation table.

  Addressing the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) summit in this Argentinean city, the statesman recalled that successive Uruguayan governments have been historically opposed to the presence of foreign military bases in their country.

Vazquez stated that his Executive rejects British military bases in the Falkland Islands, an Argentinean territory occupied by the United Kingdom.

Vazquez called his peers to state stances about the issue, and create a community doctrine.

The head of State also announced that his government would not recognize the Honduran embassy to Montevideo, for supporting the coup d'Etat against that Central American country's constitutional President Manuel Zelaya.

The UNASUR summit is discussing establishment of seven US military bases in Colombia, an accord condemned by several South American nations, which warned about consequences of that action and a possible warmongering escalation.
