UNASUR was created in 2008 by Hugo Chavez and Lula da Silva, both of whom tried to take Latin American integration to levels not previously reached.
On Friday, Brazilian Foreign Minister Mauro Vieira affirmed that his country will invite the countries to "relaunch" the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) during the Ibero-American Summit that begins in Santo Domingo.
"UNASUR played an important role. It is worth the effort to relaunch it with new bases and through a dialogue with an appropriate format... We are going to work in that direction," he said.
