Caracas__ Venezuelan Foreign Minister Delcy Rodríguez, will speak today to the Permanent Council of the Organization of American States (OAS) to denounce the media escalation against the Bolivarian Government and defend the rights of the South American nation in the regional forum, Prensa Latina reports.

Rodríguez will speak to diplomats from the 34 member countries during a special session convened by the Venezuelan delegation in the Simón Bolívar room at the Organization of American States (OAS) headquarters in Washington, USA,

From 10:00 local time, the diplomat will present the achievements of the Bolivarian Revolution despite recent economic difficulties, in response to the attempt to implement the Inter-American Democratic Charter in Venezuela, due to the alleged rupture of the constitutional order.

On March 15, OAS Secretary General Luis Almagro presented a 75-page report on the Venezuelan situation and urged the countries of the Organization to implement the Charter.

The approval of this measure, which requires the affirmative vote of two-thirds of the member states, may include the suspension of the country from OAS and an international intervention.

Meanwhile, on Thursday, 14 countries signed a declaration calling on the government of President Nicolás Maduro to release alleged political prisoners, return the faculties to the National Assembly (in majority of the opposition) and call for governor elections.

The head of the Venezuelan diplomacy stated that the petition shows ignorance of the reality of the country and is part of an interventionist media campaign, funded and directed by extremist sectors of the international right, supported by the opposition and with Almagro as the main instigator.

Rodríguez last attended the OAS headquarters on June 23, 2016, about six months after the Venezuelan ultra-right-wing campaign against the government and asked to implement the Inter-American Democratic Charter in its own homeland.

Now, she is returning for two working days, as she plans to participate in a meeting at the request of the delegations of Argentina, Bahamas, Barbados, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, United States, Guatemala, Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Saint Lucia and Uruguay.

Tomorrow, before the Permanent Council of the OAS, they will discuss the situation in Venezuela, but on the previous day it was not confirmed whether at the end of this meeting the immediate implementation of the Inter-American Democratic Charter, Almagro's main demand, will be voted on.

Regarding this, last Friday Maduro held talks with his counterparts from Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto, and Panama, Juan Carlos Varela, and ratified that Venezuela will defend during these two days its independence and sovereignty.
