“I recommend that the OASwhich is useless”, López Obrador said last Thursday in his morning conference.
Maduro agreed that the OAS should “disappear”. “our path is UNASUR (Union of South American Nations), our path is the CELAC (Community of Latin American and Caribbean States), our path is the SUNRISE (Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America)”.
Venezuela ceased to belong to the OAS in April 2019 after having requested it two years earlier due to discrepancies, but recently the president of Colombia, Gustavo Petroadvocated the re-entry of its neighboring country to the organization.
“Of course I am interested and I am fighting for it Venezuela re-enter the inter-American human rights system”, Petro said on April 19 during the protocol session of the Permanent Councilexecutive body of the OAS, in Washington.
Maduro and Petro had discussed Venezuela’s re-entry into the inter-American system in November of last year, although without definitive conclusions.

Maduro has maintained a critical discourse with the OAS for years and especially since the organization recognized the legitimate authority of Venezuela as the National Assembly “democratically elected” in 2015, headed by the opposition Juan Guaidoafter challenging his re-election in 2018.
A representative of Guaidó met in the organization until the Venezuelan opposition itself put an end to the provisional government he presided over in January 2023. Venezuela currently has no representatives.
