Caracas, April 29 (RHC-Xinhua) -- More Latin American countries on Friday threw their support behind Venezuela's decision to withdraw from the Organization of American States (OAS).
Member states of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America (ALBA) issued a statement saying they back Venezuela's "historic" move to renounce the hemispheric bloc for its biased stance towards the country's economic and political situation.
The statement comes a day after Cuba, an ALBA member, on Thursday endorsed Venezuela's decision and described the OAS as an "instrument of imperialist domination in the hemisphere."
Venezuela's decision follows repeated attempts by OAS Secretary General Luis Almagro to demonize the Bolivarian Revolution and its constitutional leaders, thus advancing Washington's imperialist domination strategies in the hemisphere.
ALBA includes Venezuela and Cuba, as well as Bolivia, Nicaragua, Dominica, Antigua and Barbuda, Ecuador, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Saint Lucia, Saint Kitts and Nevis, and Grenada.
