St. Kitts and Nevis Abstains as OAS votes to suspend Venezuela
By: T. Chapman
The Organization of American States has passed a resolution to call an Extraordinary Assembly to vote on suspending Venezuela from the 34-member group after President Nicolas Maduro’s widely condemned re-election last month.
St. Kitts and Nevis was among the countries that abstained from the vote. Belize, Suriname, Haiti, Trinidad and Tobago, Grenada and St. Lucia were some of the other countries that abstained.
The vote which took place last night was one of the final acts on the agenda at the group’s General Assembly, held in Washington DC.
