Venezuela oficializa su retiro de la OEA












Caracas, 28 de abril de 2017 (MPPRE).- La representación diplomática de la República Bolivariana de Venezuela ante la Organización de Estados Americanos (OEA), entregó este viernes la carta suscrita por el presidente Nicolás Maduro formalizando el retiro del país de este organismo.

En la misiva oficial, el Jefe de Estado sostiene que la decisión "se ajusta de manera soberana a los postulados históricos y doctrinales de nuestro proceso independentista bolivariano".

Además señala que la historia de la Organización, tanto de otrora como de ahora, "expresan de manera lastimosa a una corporación secuestrada desde su nacimiento por intereses contrarios al espíritu de integración y unión, enseñanza luminosa de nuestro Libertador Simón Bolívar, el más grande hombre que haya parido este Continente, quien siempre soñó con la Patria Grande, libre e independiente".

El pasado miércoles, el Primer Mandatario nacional anunció el retiro de Venezuela de la OEA, como un paso para romper con el intervencionismo imperial. LO

Caracas, April 27th, 2017

Luis Almagro
Organization of American States (OAS)

Mr. Secretary-General,

In my capacity as Head of State of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, I am writing with the purpose of notifying you of our unwavering decision of denouncing the Charter of the Organization of American States (OAS), based on its Article 143, initiating the definitive withdrawal of Venezuela from this Organization.

This decision aligns sovereignly to the tenets of the history and doctrine of our Bolivarian independence process. It is also fit to point out that the previous and current history of the Organization, sadly portray a corporation hijacked from its inception by interests that are contrary to the spirit of integration and union, luminous teaching of our Liberator, Simon Bolivar, the greatest man ever to be born in this Continent, who always dreamt of a Greater Homeland, free and independent. The OAS was conceived and consolidated as an infamous instrument at the service of hegemonic imperial interests, very clearly defined, deprived of the possible and relevant mission of an international organization that commands respect and respects, the principles of International Law, primarily of sovereign equality, independence, and self-determination.

The OAS has transformed into the vehicle of interventions openly detrimental to principles and to the International Rule of Law. It is deeply shameful that this institution has remained silent, without even a single complaint, or at least a stamen, in face of interventionist actions, not even in a case as absurd as arrogant as that of the Executive Order of Barack Hussein Obama on March 9, 2015, which today is reinvigorated by a minority faction of member States of the OAS, who intend to portray Venezuela and its Revolution as a regional threat.

Many other States, such as ours, suffer and complain about its loss of course and loss of purpose. Venezuela did what was possible to avoid the establishment of a stray institutional framework that rebelled against the aims of the peoples of the Region, to turn into a mere agent, reproducing or executing the hegemonic interests derived from the Monroe Doctrine and its client vassal States.

Venezuela, with profound dignity and extreme patience, attended the different fora and bureaucratic instances of the OAS to explain the reality of the country, greatly distant from the staging and the false positives that you have vilely built, applauded and publicized, using the resources that the Organization has for supposedly complying with the commitments of its Charter, and even devising a record of misappropriations by using resources to attack my country.

We have also strongly denounced the malicious plan o interventionism and tutelage that goes well beyond the perverse intention of overthrowing my Government, and in a rather historical way, seeks to destroy the Bolivarian model, intimidate other member States, an promote new and destructive forms of aggression against my country, the brutal imposition of actions of tutelage outlined by the main executors of this perverse imperial plan.

You, Mr. Almagro, have exercised the worst of all performances ever known in the history of this Organization. Forthcoming times will highlight you as the most infamous and sad official that has walked by this body, and what an effort you must have made to earn merits in that regard.

The special meeting held on April 3rd has become a milestone in the long record of illegal and irregular actions in the OAS. Under your auspices and with the participation of a minority group of States, the institutional order was contravened with a de facto Permanent Council for the sole purpose of forcing the adoption of spurious decisions lacking any legality to act against a sovereign State.

The same is applicable to the special meeting of the Permanent Council of April 26th, 2017, where the will of our Republic was once again disregarded, with the purpose of reinstating against Bolivarian Venezuela, the persecution that this Organization immorally orchestrated against the worthy Cuban Revolution, using the same mechanism of invoking a Meeting of Consultation of Foreign Ministers in 1962,  originating it exclusion from the OAS, and coining the famous phrase of Comandante Fidel Castro who named this organization the  “Ministry of the Colonies.”

The Bolivarian Government will continue to develop the Diplomacy of Peace, aiming to strengthen relations of cooperation and friendship which have characterized our foreign policy. Therefore, reaffirming its full commitment to the principles and purposes of the International Law, the United Nations Charter, PETROCARIBE, ALBA-TCP, UNASUR and the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC), which are mechanisms of integration, union and cooperation constructed with passion for the Greater Homeland by Comandante Hugo Chávez, bearers of real integration, of unity in diversity, just as is envisioned in Simón Bolívar’s Letter from Jamaica.

Venezuela already possesses the necessary wisdom to fully exercise and further deepen the text of the first article of its Constitution, namely:

The Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela is irrevocably free and independent, basing its moral heritage and values of freedom, equality, justice and international peace upon the doctrine of Simón Bolívar, the Liberator.

Independence, liberty, sovereignty, immunity, territorial integrity and national self-determination are inalienable rights of the Nation.

This shield protecting self-determination, independence, peace, territorial integrity and sovereignty marks the indissoluble path inherited from our Liberators in order to protect the dignity of our Homeland.

In this respect, this Note constitutes our unwavering  manifesto of denunciation of the Charter of the Organization of American States (OAS) so that its international effects may cease, with regards to the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, and therefore, in your capacity as Depositary, you shall communicate, immediately, this decision to the Member States.

I close this letter, confident that we have exhausted all the resources, as is characteristic of our history and praxis, in order to uphold the legality of the performance of this institution. Being it impossible to command respect for even the fundamental legal elements of the OAS Charter and international order, we hereby withdraw, calling you out as a coarse aggressor against my Homeland.

The free and independent Venezuela shall never return to the heart of this organization, turned since its inception into an instrument to validate the imperial desires against our sovereign peoples.
With this sovereign action, we have embarked upon the third victorious undertaking for the final independence of the Greater Homeland.

“The United States seems destined by Providence to plague America with misery in the name of liberty.”

Simón Bolívar

With Bolivar and Chavez we will succeed!

Nicolas Maduro Moros
