The chancellor of Nicaragua, Denis Moncada, maintained that the application of the Democratic Charter is inappropriate, illegal and without legal foundation.
Through a communiqué issued on Tuesday, the Nicaraguan Foreign Minister, Denis Moncada, requested the support of the governments of the region against the actions and petitions of the Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), related to the application of the Democratic Charter against Nicaragua.
He urged the members of the OAS not to support Almagro’s new actions against the Central American country.
In the text, Moncada argued that Luis Almagro’s decision to apply the OAS’s letter against Nicaragua is unjustified, illegal, without legal basis and contravenes the Inter-American Democratic Charter and the Charter of the Organization of American States.
Denis Moncada recalled that the Democratic Charter is an instrument to restore democratically elected governments and a mechanism against coups d’état.
“We alert the member states and request not to allow or support these unfounded actions that affect peace, stability and friendly cooperation between our peoples and governments,” the statement said.
In relation to the violent demonstrations of 2018 in Nicaragua, the foreign minister indicated that the OAS had the obligation, according to the Democratic Charter, to support the constitutional and democratic order of Nicaragua, in the face of violent acts that sought its destruction.
“Instead of assuming this task, the OAS Secretary General, Luis Almagro, chose to support the terrorist forces, encouraging the rupture of the constitutional order of Nicaragua, in open violation of the law and its obligations as Secretary General of the OAS, “the document said.
The letter affirmed that the actions of Luis Almagro are contrary to the spirit of the Inter-American Democratic Charter and are detrimental to the purpose of said regional instrument.
