Quotes of the Day: OAS Secretary General Luis Almagro on Cuba and Venezuela

Speaking on Monday at the Boston College Law School’s Clough Center for the Study of Constitutional Democracy, OAS Secretary General Luis Almagro had this to say about Cuba and Venezuela (via The Heights):

On Venezuela:

“[The dictatorship in] Venezuela is a prime example of all possible human indecency in one place… […] We need more sanctions, not less. Children are malnourished and were already starving way before the sanctions were applied to the Venezuelan dictator.”

On Cuba’s role in the destruction of democracy in Venezuela:

“Cubans have been intervening in Venezuela for years—managing intelligence activity, conducting training in torture, and managing the civil registration system. The Cuban way of doing things … has been the system that’s true in Venezuela.”

On Cuba:

“For far too long, the Cuban dictatorship has enjoyed international impunity. The OAS is working to end this shameless impunity. Cuba is not special, and it should not be an exception to Inter-American values and principles that are applied to all member states.”
