Belize backs failed US motion on Venezuela at OAS

Posted: Saturday, June 24, 2017. 8:55 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: Belize is among the members of the Organization of American States, which backed a failed motion by the United States to have a “group of friends” mediate the ongoing political crisis in Venezuela.

Belize was one of the six Caribbean Community (CARICOM) nations that supported the motion, joining Jamaica, Barbados, Bahamas, Guyana and St Lucia. The disharmony of the 14 CARICOM member states, ultimately led to the the motion falling through, as the motion only needed three more votes to succeed.

Antigua and Barbuda, Grenada, Haiti, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago abstained from voting.

Venezuela did not agree with the motion, saying that it was an interventionist move by the US. Venezuela’s Foreign Minister, Delcy Rodriguez, referred to countries that supported the US resolution as “lapdogs of imperialism”.

Jamaica’s Foreign Minister, Kamina Johnson Smith, explained that her government did not want to censor the Venezuelan government, however Jamaica has major concerns about the situation in that country.

Over 70 people have died recently as a result of the continued political crisis in Venezuela.
