Nicaragua Expels Representatives from the Organization of American States

HeadlineApr 26, 2022

Nicaragua has withdrawn from the Organization of American States and has expelled OAS representatives from the country. The OAS says the move is a “violation of the most basic international norms” and that Nicaragua cannot leave the organization until 2023. Nicaragua has long accused the OAS of being a tool for U.S. intervention. This is Nicaragua’s foreign minister.

Denis Moncada: “We ratify our unwavering decision to leave the Organization of American States, as expressed on November 19, 2021, and by confirming our irrevocable denunciation and resignation, before this calamitous, truculent and lying dependency of the State Department of Yankee imperialism.”
