The Venezuelan ambassador to the United Nations (UN), Samuel Moncada, highlighted the courage of the Nicaraguan people and Government, after the National Assembly of that country requested the head of state to withdraw the nation from the Organization of American States ( OAS), after not knowing the electoral results of November 7.
«The Nicaraguan National Assembly decided to request the Head of State to leave the OAS. It is the affirmation of national independence in the face of the greatest instrument of US oppression on the continent. Our admiration for the courage of the Nicaraguan people! ”Moncada wrote on his Twitter account, accompanied by the request for the Assembly's resolution.
The Nicaraguan National Assembly approved the document with 83 votes in favor and three abstentions, due to the repeated violations of sovereignty, independence and self-determination committed by the OAS.
The deputies condemned the interventionist actions of the OAS, manifested in the resolution approved last November 12 in Guatemala.
The president of that legislative body, Gustavo Porras, meant that this agreement violates the principle of non-intervention in the internal affairs of other states and asked President Daniel Ortega, and all the state powers, a pronouncement against this reprehensible interventionist act, for the continuity of the struggle for sovereignty and national dignity.
