he decision by four European countries to deny access to a plane carrying Bolivian President Evo Morales has brought a sharp response from Latin America.

Six Union of South American Nations (Unasur) countries on Thursday strongly condemned the action and demanded an apology to Morales.

Leaders of Argentina, Venezuela, Ecuador, Uruguay, Surinam and Bolivia held an emergency meeting in the central Bolivian city of Cochabamba. Representatives from Brazil, Chile and Peru attended the meeting.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro said the US Central Intelligence Agency was the mastermind behind the incident.

So far, the United States has neither confirmed nor denied it.

Morales said Bolivia was a sovereign state with dignity and would never succumb to any intimidation or threats from the United States.

He also called on Latin American countries to bolster Unasur solidarity and jointly counter "imperialist provocative acts."

What ever happened to diplomatic immunity? :censored This is clearly against international law and against diplomatic immunity. I think this is an injustice and an embarrassment to Western nations.
It does seem to have helped snowden get accepted in venezuela. It seems a little amazing that Obama picks the strangest times to grow a backbone.
