South America launches new defence council

On 10 March, the embryonic South American Defence Council (Consejo de Defensa Sudamericano: CDS) opened its first formal meeting in Santiago de Chile to define a four-year "action plan". The CDS is a new regional organisation that will serve as a "meeting platform" for the defence ministers of the member states of the Union of South American Nations (Unión de Naciones Suramericanas: UNASUR)
