Bolivia, January 12, 2011
Evo Morales, Bolivia’s president, expressed to the Venezuelan government of Hugo Chavez, his personal solidarity on behalf of all Bolivians by the attacks of the general secretary of the Organization of American States (OAS).
The Latin American leader, condemned the attacks coordinated by “government officials of the United States and Jose Miguel Insulza” against Venezuela, its democracy and institutions.
In addition, through a statement, Evo Morales expressed to his Venezuelan counterpart the indignation to see bureaucrats that should serve legitimate and democratic governments of the continent, speaking rudely and biased in its internal affairs”.
Insulza, general secretary of the OAS, had declared last week that Chavez’s Enabling Law issued by the National Assembly, violates the spirit and letter of the American Democratic Charter.
The statements generated the rejection not only of the government of this country and the Members of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela, and the majority in the Assembly, but the reaction of leaders of the continent.
The president of Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega, called disrespectful and misplaced Insulza for his criticism of Venezuela.
“I do not know what happens to Insulza, he is misplacing his work as general secretary of the OAS” and said that “he does not represent any government, he is an employee of our people. He has no right to be reviewing internal policies or disrespect a country” said the Nicaraguan President.
