Nicaragua, Ecuador Condemns U.S. Threats against Venezuela at OAS

San Salvador -  Nicaragua and Ecuador on Monday rejected US destabilizing actions against Venezuela during the 41st General Assembly of the Organization of American States (OAS) in the capital of El Salvador.

Representatives from both countries, Denis Moncada and Maria Isabel Salvador, respectively, spoke on the issue on the first day of discussions.

Moncada recalled the sanctions imposed by the US government to the company Petroleos de Venezuela (PDVSA) as part of Washington's policy against Iran.

Moncada, Permanent Representative of Nicaragua to the OAS, said that the US measures against Venezuela are arbitrary actions aimed at destabilizing the nation.

Such measures undermine stability, security and regional peace, said Moncada, who also warned that the sanctions are targeted against the rest of the member countries of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our Americas (ALBA).

The Permanent Representative of Ecuador to the OAS, Maria Isabel Salvador, in her speech at the plenary expressed her country's strong rejection against any attempt of aggression against Venezuela.

The 41st OAS General Assembly was inaugurated on Sunday evening by President of El Salvador, Mauricio Funes, and the secretary general of that organization, former Chilean Foreign Minister Jose Miguel Insulza.

The first plenary session was held Monday morning, during which the Salvadoran Foreign Minister Hugo Martinez was elected president of the General Assembly and the agenda and schedule for the meeting were approved.

The meeting will last until Tuesday night, when it be will publish the final statement and other relevant resolutions of the organization.
