LA PAZ, June 1 (Xinhua) -- Bolivian President Evo Morales on Wednesday urged Luis Almagro, secretary-general of the Organization of American States (OAS), not to become an instrument in foreign interventions in Venezuela.
"Before Barack Obama Today Luis Almagro is attacking us. Brother Almagro, do not become an instrument of interventionism against the revolutionary people of Venezuela," wrote Morales on Twitter on Wednesday.
The president said that the activation of the OAS' Inter-American Democratic Charter (IDC) would be illegitimate and affect democracy in Venezuela.
On Tuesday, Almagro called for a meeting of the OAS member states in June to discuss the current situation of Venezuela.
The meeting will discuss the possibility of activating the IDC for Venezuela, an instrument which has been activated only twice ever -- in 2002 for an attempted coup against former Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and in 2009 for a coup.
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro on Tuesday accused the head of the Washington-based organization of seeking to invoke the instrument, which could result in the suspension of its membership in the inter-continental organization.
"The dignity, sovereignty and self-determination of the CELAC (Community of Latin American and Caribbean States) members must be defended, and not sold, brother Almagro," Morales said on Twitter.
