The 47th General Assembly of the Organization of American States begins today its plenary sessions, in an environment marked by the lack of consensus on two proposals on Venezuela.
The meeting’s theme is ‘Strengthening dialogue and consensus for prosperity,’ as well as discussing issues such as integral development, rule of law, democracy and human rights, multidimensional security and women’s leadership in four panels.
Behind these themes lies the one of Venezuela, whose Foreign Minister Delcy Rodríguez reiterated that her country will withdraw from the Pan American organization to prioritize the integration in the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC).
The Venezuelan diplomat stressed that the government of President Nicolás Maduro will not accept any resolution emanating from the OAS, whose secretary general Luis Almagro she accused of being a spokesman for US interests and maneuvers against her country.
In any case, the consultation meeting that was intended to decide on the situation in the South American nation had to be suspended due to a lack of consensus on the two proposals submitted, one by the United States and Mexico and the other by Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.
Venezuela withdrew from the consultation meeting after considering it fraudulent.
