According to the statement from the US Embassy in Uruguay, it is the first in a series of visits by US officials, highlighting the strong partnership between Uruguay and the United States.

The Popular Unity political party rejected the US Southern Command’s visit to the country. The mission led by Navy Admiral Craig Faller and commander of the US Southern Command, arrived in Uruguay on Sunday.
“Unfortunately our country reopens the doors wide to foreign military troops Yankee imperialism trampling on national sovereignty,”
The leftist group maintains that “the military troops, weapons, aircraft and their objectives have nothing to do with the real needs of our people, much less in these moments that we live, of historical international economic crisis, enhanced by Covid -19 pandemic, where the contradictions of the imperialist-capitalist system are exacerbated ”.
They argued that this visit is part of a “strategy” by the United States to interfere “in what they consider to be ‘their backyard’ in the face of the rebellion of the peoples.” They state that this has happened with all governments, and “ evidences of this are the multiple presences of military troops, particularly North American ones, in recent years, which have arrived with the approval of all political parties except Popular Unity, in the Previous period”.
They pointed out that the United States is “a promoter of invasions, coups, blockade of Cuba and Venezuela and the submission of the current government of the right-wing coalition to that country.”
