La paz, Feb 8 (Prensa Latina) The Bolivian government will offer to channel the aid to Haiti given by the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) whose extraordinary meeting will be held in Quito, Ecuador, on Tuesday.

  According to La Razon daily, Bolivian Vice President Alvaro Garcia told state press that his country will make that proposal, supported and assumed by other governments of the region.

“The aid to Haiti must be channelled through State institutions because power should be centralized and not fragmentized and as it is now,” noted Garcia.

Following the January 12 earthquake in Haiti with over 200,000 dead so far, the Bolivian government has also questioned the US military presence in that Caribbean nation.
