The Member States promise to assess “in depth” a report presented last March 14 by Luis Almagro, recommending the enforcement of the Inter-American Democratic Charter for Venezuela’s suspension.

The 14 signatory countries offered to “cooperate with the people and the government of Venezuela in whatever can contribute to solve the political, economic and social challenges in that country.”

In a joint statement issued on Thursday, a group of 14 Member States of the Organization of American States (OAS) urged the government of Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro to outline an electoral schedule and set political prisoners free.

“We deem it urgent to prioritize on the release of political prisoners, recognize the legitimacy of the decisions of the National Assembly, under the Constitution, and set an electoral schedule, including postponed elections,” reads the text quoted by Efe.

The statement was expected to be officially released on Friday afternoon, including the following signatories: Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, United States and Uruguay.
