President Ortega: TIAR against Venezuela is an act of “war”
The Nicaraguan president assured that the TIAR has become “an instrument of the expansionist policy of the United States”.
The president of Nicaragua, Daniel Ortega, considered Friday as a bellicose act the activation of the Inter-American Treaty of Reciprocal Assistance (TIAR) against Venezuela.
Ortega criticized the 12 countries of the American continent, especially Argentina and the United States, which approved, within the Organization of American States (OAS), to apply the TIAR to Venezuela.
That act means “raising the ax of war,” the Nicaraguan president said during ceremony to remember the 163 years of the battle of San Jacinto, in which American patriots and invaders clashed.
“It is a shame that we have governments that, acting against what the same organizations that they are manipulating, such as the OAS and the UN, to which they are committed, send themselves to want to raise the ax of war with the TIAR, ”said the Central American president.
The president said the Inter-American Treaty of Reciprocal Assistance (TIAR) should be used to “free” the Malvinas Islands, the Argentine territory occupied by the United Kingdom, or Guantanamo, located in the easternmost corner of Cuba, administered by the US Government.
