I just heard Chavez say that he will not negotiate, “the country is not negotiable”. I wonder what the OAS, Cesar Gaviria and the rest of the people think about this.
It reminds me of an article I read today in El Universal called “The word that ruins us” by Gerver Torres, where he relates that he was participating in negotiations in Costa Rica and the head of the union said they were pulling out of the negotiation because the President had said something different than what was being negotiated. He tried to tell her that maybe he had said that without knowing what he was talking about. She said: “Maybe that is in your country where the President says things whether they are true or not…here in Costa Rica when a President speaks we understand he is telling the truth”
What a different world, no?
