Moral voice of ALBA and CARICOM na­tions pre­vailed at OAS

The Star (St. Lucia) - - REGIONAL -

Venezuela’s For­eign Af­fairs Min­is­ter, Delcy Ro­driguez, stressed on Wed­nes­day that the moral voice of the coun­tries of the Bo­li­var­ian Al­liance for the Peo­ples of Our Amer­ica (ALBA) and the Caribbean Com­mu­nity (CARICOM) pre­vailed at the meet­ing of For­eign Min­is­ters of the Or­ga­ni­za­tion of Amer­i­can States (OAS).

“The only con­sen­sus re­sult­ing from this meet­ing is that there is no con­sen­sus be­cause the moral voice and strict re­spect for the in­ter­na­tional norms of ALBA and CARICOM groups pre­vailed over this in­ter­ven­tion­ist group of dis­re­spect to in­ter­na­tional law . . . " a diplo­mat said in a phone call aired on lo­cal tele­vi­sion.

Ear­lier, the OAS meet­ing of for­eign min­is­ters to dis­cuss the sit­u­a­tion of Venezuela was sus­pended – at the re­quest of the CARICOM coun­tries – af­ter lack of con­sen­sus among the 34 del­e­ga­tions present at the meet­ing.

On the other hand, Ro­driguez in­formed that, on the or­ders of Pres­i­dent Nico­las Maduro, Venezuela will at­tend the next OAS meet­ing to be held in Can­cun, Mex­ico, from June 19 to 21. “We will ar­rive in Can­cun from the hands of the peo­ple, to de­fend the le­git­i­mate rights of Venezuela,” added the min­is­ter.

She said that at this meet­ing she will rat­ify Venezuela’s will­ing­ness to with­draw from the in­ter­na­tional body – a process that be­gan April 28 and lasts 24 months – from where a plan of at­tack and vi­o­la­tion of the sovereignty and in­de­pen­dence has been for­mu­lated against the Bo­li­var­ian home­land.
