The Heads of State of Mercosur Member States signed on Wednesday a document voicing "deep rejection" of a bill approved by the US Senate intended to impose sanctions on Venezuelan officials. In their document, the leaders made an appeal on US President Barack Obama's administration to refrain from enforcing the sanctions.

Through the instrument, Mercosur presidents reaffirmed "that the application of unilateral sanctions, like those provided under the bill, violates the principle of non-intervention in the internal affairs of other States, and does not contribute to stability, social peace, and democracy in Venezuela."

The document is part of the seven instruments produced during Mercosur biannual summit, which concluded on Wednesday in Paraná, Argentina.
