The Permanent Council of the Organization of American States (OAS) resolved with 18 votes to hold a meeting next May 31 in Washington where the foreign ministers of the OAS Member States will discuss the issue of Venezuela.
In the voting during a special session, 18 Member States voted for, one against, 13 abstained, and two countries, Grenada and Venezuela, were not present.
The initiative had been approved in the meeting of the Permanent Council last April 26.
The Mexican delegation proposed May 31 for the meeting.
Venezuela did not attend the voting, arguing that it would not take into account any activity carried out by the OAS or anything approved by the hemispheric organization.
