Caracas- Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro repudiated the report on the nation presented by the Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), Luis Almagro, that ''ignores the institutional processes and principles of the organization.''
According to the local media, the head of state described today the document presented by the Uruguayan politician as illegitimate and illegal, and considered that its sole purpose was to destabilize the Bolivarian Revolution and promote foreign intervention in the South American nation.
Almagro, a well-known enemy of the Venezuelan people, has forged false assumptions against the Republic in order to accentuate the economic war against our society, said the statement published on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
His performance as the head of the OAS has exceeded his powers and has been marked by abuse of power, guided by his complicity with the coup, extremist and antidemocratic opposition in Venezuela, the text argues.
It is the despicable hatred of converts, it says, what moves his actions, his aberrant writings will be lost in the night of history as an example of the extent to which a bent person is capable of destroying the function of an organism.
It also regrets that Almagro 'revives the darkest pages of the interventionist and coup history of the OAS, by imposing mechanisms that flagrantly violate Venezuela's legal and constitutional order and the OAS Charter, its fundamental principles and rigorous norms which regulate their performance.'
The Foreign Ministers of the Hemisphere, meeting at the OAS General Assembly on June 15, 2016, had noted with concern such irregularities, and decided to refer the Permanent Council to review its action, the president said.
He also accuses Almagro of leading 'the hemispheric concert of the fascist right that harasses, and aggressively attacks Venezuela, without scruple or ethics, characterized by the anti-legal and fraudulent forging of false positives against our sacred homeland.'
Venezuela will take legal action against the Secretary of the OAS, said Maduro, who also reaffirmed that 'conspiracy, miserable and insurrectionary action' promoted from that organization will not stop the country and the people on their way to the bright future marked by the Liberators.
