“It is of significant importance” for the EU to reach a trade agreement with Mercosur and it would be a "historic mistake" not to proceed along that path particularly when all sorts of new trade alliances are being implemented worldwide.
“Mercosur and the EU are going through a positive situation to advance in the negotiations particularly since there is the conviction that the obstacles that have persisted, can be overcome” said the EU official. ■
