As anticipated Financial Field on Friday in the final document of the Summit of Latin America there was no condemnation to the U.S. for the massive leakage of secret cables of American diplomacy. Thus, Argentina's position prevailed - and other countries close to the power-on on the toughest wing region comprising Venezuela, Ecuador, Cuba and Nicaragua. However, the issue was not outside the hours of discussions.

The failure to sign a statement against the United States was confirmed after the Chancellor Héctor Timerman report the agreements reached with their peers, none of which refers to the Wiki-scandal. There was only sentenced to the oil industry in the Falklands by Britain and the trade embargo on Cuba, in addition to other documents, including the most important (the Declaration of Mar del Plata) for which the countries pledged to invest in the next decade or $ s 100,000 million on education in the region.

The decision to veto a conviction took final shape after the U.S. Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, will contact last week with President Cristina Kirchner to give "explanations" for the leak of documents by the WikiLeaks site. Cables that are related to Argentina are particularly controversial and that inquire about health "physical and mental health" of the president, described the management of the power of K, and to mention officials alleged links with corruption, drug trafficking and political espionage.

There was concern in the U.S. - and also in Argentina - with the possibility that the Summit would become a forum anti-American. However, the absence of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and Bolivia's Evo Morales, both protagonists of some of the cables, diluted to some extent the fears. Is that Cristina Kirchner had made a commitment to the U.S. official did not go openly into an international scandal for the massive leak of secret U.S. cables through the Web site WikiLeaks. So the President got off the closing press conference of the summit and thus avoided awkward questions relating to diplomatic episode that shocked the world.

The position in Argentina, together with that of other states such as Brazil, Colombia or Chile, to remain silent before the Wiki-scandal that was finally won when the final document against the hard wing representing Venezuela, Ecuador and Bolivia .

Yes there was a free hand to the leaders to relate to the Wiki-scandal at the time of the debates. One of the speeches was waiting with anticipation of Ecuador's Rafael Correa, already in the U.S. had previously said that "betrayed the trust of the countries." But at the time of speaking in the plenary of presidents did not specifically mention the case. The first issue was referred to the Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez Parrilla, who blasted the White House. There was no mention by the president of the Supreme Court of Nicaragua, who focused his speech on the territorial dispute that their country has with Costa Rica.

Another who spoke against the U.S. for the diplomatic row was the Venezuelan Foreign Minister Nicolas Maduro and expressed his "profound repudiation" to what he called a "vast operation of political intrigue and espionage." The Caribbean officials considered the event as a "violation of rights of States" and particularly against the "Bolivarian revolution."

However, at the end of his statement, the replacement of Chavez in Venezuela representing slowed his speech and felt that this may allow diplomatic scandal "a reflection" at the international level. Finally, he called a "renewal of relations" between countries.

Meanwhile, also had expectations about what was said Bolivian Vice President Alvaro Garcia Linera, who entered the country on behalf of Evo Morales. One of the cables filtered by the site created by Julian Assange concerned that the U.S. had sought in Cristina de Kirchner help to control the president of the highlands and try to close the gap with the White House.

García Linera charged hard against the U.S. and said there is a spy imperial diplomacy, while the U.S. administration has accused of seeking to destabilize Latin America. Do not let this information, this course of action, will be conflict between us. Seek separate, roared the second Evo Morales. Meanwhile, he stressed that the continent will not fall into that kind of provocation.

Argentina is in a stage of improving relations with the U.S., especially the intention of closing down a suitable agreement for the payment of the debt with the Paris Club and a rapprochement with the IMF, which sent technicians to the country in the coming days to assist in the reorganization of the INDEC statistics. The position of the Northern power will be key, and that is why we are working on Balcarce 50 to reduce the impact of the onslaught against the U.S. at the Summit.
