La Paz, Sep 16 (Prensa Latina)

Bolivian media highlights Tuesday the agreements analyzed in an urgent summit of the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR), to support the government of Evo Morales. According to La Razon, La Prensa, El Nuevo Dia, El Deber and Los Tiempos newspapers, the sending of a commission to assess attacks by adverse groups on the current process of change in the Andean country are among conclusions of that meeting held in Santiago de Chile Monday.

That group could be led by Chilean stateswoman Michelle Bachelet, presiding temporarily over the regional integration organization. Radio Patria Nueva station and the Bolivian Information Agency states that the UNASUR heads of State won’t recognize a civil coup in this country and demanded the return of those government institutions taken by the opposition. Members from the Youth Union in the eastern region of Santa Cruz keep under control the National Budget offices, a telecommunication company, the National Agrarian Reform Institute, the Forest Superintendence, Mail and Migration. According to the Executive, those facilities were taken by force early this month and later sacked by vandals.

President Morales denounced in Chile details of the implementation of a coup in some departments. The UNASUR did not admit participation of opposition prefects from the so-called Crescent departments of Tarija, Pando, Beni and Santa Cruz, which requested Sunday to be included.
