The Organization or American States (OAS) has suspended tomorrow’s summit regarding Venezuela’s political unrest “for administrative reasons”, but postponed the meeting for a further date, officials said.

In a formal letter presented yesterday, Venezuela’s Ambassador to the OAS Roy Chaderton, requested General Secretary, José Manuel Insulza to suspend the reunion as result of an alleged violation of the seven article from the entity’s foundational charter.

According to Chaderton, when the meeting was convoked, the president of the Permanent Council, Pedro Vergés was not physically present in Washington as due.

OAS treated Venezuela’s situation on February 19 for the first time, during an ordinary session where the United States and Canada expressed their concern over the violence in that country, and urged President Nicolás Maduro to engage a dialogue with opposition parties.

In response, Chaderton assured protests and political unrest are result of a “destabilization action,” against the Government, orchestrated by the local opposition and supported by the United Stated.
