Havana, April 17 (acn) UNASUR has been the name given by the presidents of South American nations on Monday to the integration process uderway in a dozen countries of the region, said Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

"Today we decided to call it UNASUR, the Union of South American Nations, a tremendous concept," Hugo Chavez told journalists at the end of a political dialogue with his colleagues in Venezuela for the First South American Energy Summit.

President Chavez said that it was also agreed that UNASUR would have a permanent secretariat headquartered in Quito, Ecuador and he added that the presidents had debated in depth and that there was consensus among them, Granma daily reported.

One of the topics discussed was the need to reach a South American Energy Treaty that would guarantee all the countries of South America energy, oil, gas and petrochemical products. "This is very important because the world is advancing towards an energy crisis," said Chavez.
