Venezuela rejects pretension of the OAS Secretary General to apply Democratic Charter to Nicaragua

The President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro Moros, in the name of the Venezuelan People, categorically rejects the void decision by the Secretary-General of the OAS at intending to start the biased implementation of the Inter-American Democratic Chart to the Government of Reconciliation and National Unity of the Republic of Nicaragua.

Once again, the unpresentable Luis Almagro proves his obligingness to the interests of the American foreign policy, as well as the obsessive manipulation by Organization of American States against legitimate popular governments. This new imperialist maneuver, under a multilateral masquerade, against the Nicaraguan people’s will, is a demonstration of the regional policy ideologization within the OAS and expresses the total and definitive failure of this organization for the Latin-American and Caribbean Peoples.

The Government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela expresses its unrestricted support to the Constitutional President of the Republic of Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega, and Vice-President, Comrade Rosario Murillo, and to the brotherly People of Nicaragua, reaffirming the close ties of brotherhood and solidarity which represent the unity and fraternity between our nations.
