Morales: Bolivia Trade Suspension Shows Obama Lied to Latin America
Loading the player ...
President Obama has announced he will continue a Bush administration policy of suspending trade benefits to Bolivia. The Bush administration revoked the benefits last year, accusing Bolivian President Evo Morales of failing to cooperate in the so-called war on drugs. On Wednesday, Morales said Obama has been deceptive in promising a new era of regional cooperation. Referring to Obamas overtures at a recent hemispheric summit, Morales said, President Obama lied to Latin America when he told us in Trinidad and Tobago that there are not senior and junior partners. The US has been accused of hypocrisy for targeting Bolivia. The most recent UN figures show cocaine production in Bolivia rose just five percent in 2007. Colombia, which has received billions in US aid, saw an increase of 27 percent.
