Venezuela has reported that the time has come to pull out from the Organization of American States (OAS) over the continental body’s political negative position towards Caracas.
Venezuelan foreign minister, Delcy Rodriguez said on Wednesday that Caracas would be starting a two-year process to completely withdraw from the 35-member regional organization, which is headquartered in the USA.
The OAS was founded in 1948, with a declared mission of boosting regional solidarity and cooperation among its member states, but Washington has been manipulating the OAS to turn against the socialist government in Caracas.
A couple of member states, such as Colombia has been interfering in Venezuela’s domestic issues. About six million refugee Colombians live in Venezuela and have been plundering the state subsidized supermarkets for profit, accusing Caracas for the food shortages in the oil-rich Latin American country.
Maduro’s government has faced violent internal opposition to a number of anti-capitalist policies that left the economy stripped from its income, thanks to IMF corrupted sanctions and the hostile Washington’s agenda, set up to annex the Venezuelan oil reserves and hand them over to the Western oil giants.
The American supported opposition claims that the government in Caracas is using armed forces to cause violence in the country, but Maduro’s government blames the hostile opposition of working with criminal gangs in an attempt to move him from power.
