Cochabamba, Bolivia.Cuatro member countries of the Bolivarian Alternative for the Americas (ALBA), Venezuela, Ecuador, Bolivia and Nicaragua, reported today the Inter-American Treaty of Reciprocal Assistance (Rio Treaty) and resigned to it.

The heads of delegations from 42 countries to the General Assembly of the Organization of American States (OAS), based in this city, reported jointly determining away from the said treaty.

Ecuadorian Foreign Minister Ricardo Patino, on behalf of the four countries, explained the reasons for the determination of that block, which also includes Cuba, Dominica, Saint Vincent and the Grandinas, and Antigua and Barbuda.

“Our countries have made the decision to bury what deserves to be buried, or throw the trash bin that no longer serves. The Rio Treaty was created under conditions where it was assumed that could serve as an instrument of mutual protection of the countries of the Americas in the event of alleged attacks outside the continent, “he said Patiño.

The Foreign Minister of Ecuador reiterated, however, that “the most important moment that should have been used, when the severe episode of the Falkland Islands in the 80′s, was not implemented. And not only did not applied, but one member, United States, support, supported the United Kingdom. “

Patino then stressed that “our countries have taken the decision to terminate the said treaty,” adding that each of these four nations will appeal to their own procedures and mechanisms to do so.

“This decision we thought well, we have agreed very well with our governments to clean the litter of the institution of the OAS, as few presidents have said, is obliged to reinvent itself,” he said.

According to Patiño, the ALBA countries demanded an organization that serves the people, not hegemonic interests, to become an advocate and proponent of human rights of our people.

The four countries represented here we take steps to the grave of TIAR as a first move to the transformations that the OAS needs, Ecuadorian Foreign Minister concluded.

Patiño and Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa announced that his country would leave before the Rio Treaty.

Ecuadorian Foreign Minister was accompanied by their counterparts in Venezuela and Bolivia, Nicolas Maduro and David Choquehuanca, respectively, as well as the Permanent Representative of Nicaragua to the OAS, Denis Ronaldo Moncada Colindres.
