Chávez: Celac will gradually uproot the old, worn OAS
"Celac is born with a new spirit; is a platform for people s economic, political and social development, which is very different from OAS," said the Venezuelan president
Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez said Thursday that as the years go by the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States will uproot the old, worn Organization of American Status (OAS).
"As the years pass, Celac will leave behind the old OAS," Chávez told reporters.
He added that, contrary to the OAS, Celac is a weapon for integration.
"OAS has adopted a new setup. However, it is a toothless, old body. It has been eroded by time. OAS is far from the spirit of our peoples and integration in Latin America. Celac is born with a new spirit; it is a platform for people's economic, political and social development, which is very different from OAS," Chávez noted.
Luis Jiménez Alfaro seems to have hidden under the rocks. The last time he was seen was on April 2006 walking calmly around Simón Bolívar International Airport of Maiquetía, located nearby Caracas. At that time, more than five tons of cocaine arrived in Mexico in an airplane which took off from Venezuela, and his name featured as a missing piece of the puzzle of one of the most massive drug shipments that has been witnessed in the Western Hemisphere.
