The ruling party gave its opinion on two controversies. On the one hand, the elections in Nicaragua where Daniel Ortega was the winner and, on the other, the defense of Facundo Jones Huala, which will be initiated by the Argentine ambassador in Chile, Rafael Bielsa.
The person in charge of representing the government was Eduardo Valdes, president of the Foreign Relations and Worship commission in the Lower House.
Valdes vindicated the policy of non-interference that the country has over other states. At present, the Government decided not to interfere in cases of Nicaragua, Venezuela and Cuba reported by the Organization of American States (OAS) for violations of Human rights.
The deputy is proud of Argentina’s foreign policy, he also questioned Luis Almagro, holder of the OAS.
“What had to be resolved was discussed with Nicaragua.” “In order to bring up this issue, I want to tell you that Argentina withdrew its ambassador at the time of the arrests. Daniel Capitanich He is in Argentine headquarters and has not been reinstated, “said the former ambassador to the Vatican.
“What we had to solve with Nicaragua, we discussed it with Nicaragua“, he sentenced.
According to the OASValdes declared that the ruling party has many differences with the general secretary of the organization.
“We discussed the attitude of the OAS when political leaders from Latin America were persecuted, in the same way that happens in Nicaragua, “remarked Valdés.
The deputy said that the OAS did not echo when Dilma Rousseff was removed from office in Brazil.
He also recalled that “The OAS nor did he say anything when they outlawed and prosecuted Rafael Correa“and recalled the case of Evo Morales and the elections in Bolivia, following the account of the Latin American lawfare installed by the vice president.
And he concluded: “Let us not judge Argentine foreign policy from the point of view of Luis Almagro. Let’s judge country by country. We are proud of another country that you named. Today there is dialogue, in which much had to do Argentina, between the sectors of Venezuela and Mexico“.
Regarding the departure of the Lima Group, Valdes said that the Government had nothing to do there.
“We went to the Contact Group, led by Norway and France invited us. That group is succeeding and moving forward,” he closed.
Although it was not on the agenda, Valdés spoke about the participation of Ambassador Rafael Bielsa in a hearing of Jones Huala, RAM leader, in Chile.
“If the defense lawyer of an Argentine citizen asks the ambassador or the consul for consular assistance, it is the ambassador’s decision to participate or not. When in doubt, I tell you, I love that the ambassadors are more involved than the consuls and more if they are political ambassadors, “said Valdés.
“We are proud that an ambassador like Diego Guelar, Rafael Bielsa, honorable citizens who have a political past that is respected, a political presentation and an exemplary conduct that none of us could criticize,” he added.
“In few situations I have as much agreement as with this foreign policy of the Argentine government,” Valdes closed.
