Mexico insists that the OAS must disappear

The Government of the President of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, proposed this weekend to disappear the Organization of American States (OAS) and create a new regional body to suppress interventionism.

During the Seventh Plenary Meeting of Senators of the ruling National Regeneration Movement party (Morena), Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard reiterated that the OAS must disappear.

"Someone has to send a letter, or something, to Luis Almagro, but the OAS cannot continue to be an instrument of intervention," said the Mexican Secretary of Foreign Relations.

"What is Mexico's proposal? Goodbye to the OAS in its interventionist, interventionist and hegemonist sense and let another organization come that we build in agreement with the United States for the XNUMXst century, ”said Ebrard, who recalled that this objective was raised by the Mexican president during the meeting last July in Mexico of foreign ministers of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (Celac).

He announced that the next steps on this proposal will be defined at the Celac Summit of Heads of State and Government, scheduled for September 18 in Mexico. / Agencies.
