Venezuela extends energy security to PETROCARIBE
A highlight of the Third Summit of the PETROCARIBE Agreement, currently in session in Caracas, is the Venezuelan proposal to extend the influence of the Energy Security Treaty to country members of the mechanism.

During a recent tour including Argentina, Uruguay, Ecuador and Bolivia, President Hugo Chavez arranged these nations joining of the agreement, presented for the first time on occasion of the South American Energy Summit in Margarita Island, Venezuela.
