The Secretary general of the Bolivarian Alliance for the peoples of our America – trade treaty of the peoples (ALBA-TCP), David Choquehuanca, welcomed the decision of the President of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, remove this country from the Organization of American States (OAS). He called to evaluate and analyze the role of the OAS in the region.
He said that this analysis will be the focus of the meeting of the community of Latin American and Caribbean (Celac) who was summoned by the Foreign Minister of Venezuela, Delcy Rodríguez, and will be held on May 2.
In an exclusive interview for teleSUR, Choquehuanca, who took over the Ministry in March of this year, said that the OAS is in crisis. “Did not support democracy, does not support our people and therefore not worth that it continues to exist. (…) Instead of supporting the unity and sovereignty of the peoples he is receiving games of imperialist interests”, he explained.
For Secretary of Bolivian origin, this corresponds to a “global crisis of capitalism” in which social movements have built alternatives seeking justice and social development. The ALBA-TCP would be one of these alternatives. “From dawn is built an alternative that is free from conflicts and wars,” said Secretary highlighting the role of dialogue and cooperation for the solution of conflicts.
On the political conflict that has experienced in recent weeks in Venezuela, Choquehuanca said that the ALBA-TCP is willing to participate as a mediator in a national dialogue to “solve the problems of Venezuelans”. He said that “Alba has expressed its full support to the Bolivarian revolution and President Maduro, elected democratically. (…) Dawn gives its total support institutions in Venezuela and its authorities constitutionally elected.”> Venezuela reaffirms its sovereignty to formalize his retirement from OAS
