Member countries of the Inter-American Treaty of Reciprocal Assistance (TIAR) decided to activate the treaty on the crisis in Venezuela.
The meeting that was held at the headquarters of the United Nations Organization (UN) in New York and was chaired by the Colombian Foreign Minister, Carlos Holmes Trujillo.
With the activation of this treaty, the legitimate Government of Venezuela manages to crystallize the first actions of the TIAR against Nicolás Maduro’s dictatorship.
This historic decision marks an important milestone in the fight for democracy in Venezuela and begins a stage of international pressure promoted by the President (E) of the Republic, Juan Guaido, to achieve the cessation of usurpation.
Hard blow to the regime
TIAR’s first resolution on Venezuela declares that Maduro’s regime participates in drug trafficking, money laundering, terrorism, corruption and human rights violations. It also points out that the Venezuelan territory has become a refuge for terrorist organizations and illegal armed groups.
OAS foreign ministers said that Maduro’s regime is a threat to the maintenance of peace and security on the continent, which is why they decided to take this series of actions:
-Countries will prepare a common list of people linked to Nicolás Maduro’s regime related to drug trafficking, terrorism, human rights violations and corruption.
– They will freeze accounts and properties in the territory of the States party to the TIAR.
– An operational team will be created of financial intelligence and public security for judicial and police actions.
– It was agreed to use all available measures to investigate, punish, prosecute, extradite and capture officials of the dictatorship.
These measures, which will be applied by the countries that approved the resolution of the TIAR, will increase the pressure on the usurper while it continues to hold on to power and continues to attack the Venezuelan people.
