The Common Market of the South (Mercosur) took on Friday in Brasilia a step forward in its span, after announcing in its 44th Summit the beginning of talks to add Bolivia as full member. Earlier, last July, the trade bloc opened its doors to Venezuela.

Brazilian President Dilma Rouseff aired the upcoming inclusion of Bolivia at the opening session. The main absent was Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez as his country was making its debut as full member, DPA reported.

Chávez was represented in the event by Minister of Petroleum and Mining Rafael Ramírez. Foreign Minister Nicolás Maduro would not travel to Brasilia for the summit that coincided with the return of President Chávez to Caracas, after his nine-day stay in Cuba for his cancer treatment.
