2016-05-31

“The Organization of American States (OAS) is trying to return to its interventionist past in the continent, according to Rafael Ramirez, Permanent Representative of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela to the United Nations, following the intention of Luis Almagro, Secretary General of the multilateral organization of invoking the Democratic Charter.

 Ramirez mentioned that Almagro is acting outside of his responsibilities as Secretary-General of OAS for invoking for the first time the democratic charter since, according to the statutes of the organization he represents; it is for the Government of the concerned country to use this resource.

“We regret that Almagro has given in to such manipulations against our country, and we demand non-intervention in our internal affairs. We are capable enough, in the legal and institutional framework, to solve our affairs” stated the Venezuelan diplomat.

In this regard, Ramirez explained that the Secretary-General must act as an administrator of issues discussed within the organization, and not as a political decision maker in these.
