You get the news straight from the twitter account of Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, too. Venezuela's wanted to be in on the Mercosur deal for ages and as Mercosur member Paraguay has been blocking the integration of Venezuela into Mercosur for years, the recent ousting of Lugo in Paraguay has lad to the suspension of Paraguay from Mercosur (and Unasur) until free elections are held. This has left the doorway open to accept Venezuela into the Mercosur free trade block (Uruguay, Argentina and Brazil) and that's what they're doing, as of this month.
And that's the way things happen round here.
