President Evo Morales rejected the intention of the Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), Luis Almagro, to apply the Inter-American Democratic Charter against Nicaragua.
The President of Bolivia, Evo Morales, denounced on Friday the “coup intentions” of the Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), Luis Almagro, against the sovereignty of Nicaragua.
The OAS claim to activate the mechanisms of the Inter-American Democratic Charter against Nicaragua is “by instruction of the empire, and with coup intentions,” the Bolivian president said through his Twitter account.
Evo also said that Almagro can not go against the self-determination of the people, and demanded the organism to leave the “interference and respect the sovereignty”. Last Thursday the secretary general of the OAS announced during an extraordinary session of the Permanent Council the beginning of the process for the activation of the Democratic Charter against the Central American country for an alleged “alteration of the constitutional order”.
The initiative, which had the support of the governments of Argentina, Colombia, Chile, the United States and Peru, could be derived after several instances in the suspension of Nicaragua as a member of the OAS.
In this framework, the Nicaraguan diplomatic representation in the organization, led by Luis Alvarado, rejected the attempt of interference and indicated that Almagro is acting in an “accusatory and threatening manner.” “As a sovereign country we demand respect from interventionist nations of this body subordinated to the United States Government (…) That is why they call these meetings, insist on forcing the change of government financing vandalism and terrorist groups, creating an atmosphere in public opinion (…) against the Nicaraguan people who recovered tranquility and joy, “Alvarado said during the extraordinary session.
Since the beginning of April 2018, Nicaragua has experienced an attempted coup characterized by violent protests, acts of sabotage and terrorism that seek to overthrow the constitutional government of President Daniel Ortega.
