Bolivia asks OAS to condemn Evo Morales’ plane row

Bolivian interior minister Carlos Romero on Tuesday denounced what he called an ‘act of aggression’ when Bolivian President Evo Morales’ plane was rerouted to Austria amid suspicions that National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden was on board.

Bolivia, backed by Nicaragua, Ecuador and Venezuela, called on the Organization of American States’ permanent council to approve a declaration demanding that such an incident never be repeated. He also called for apologies from European nations. The issue has strained U.S relations with Latin American nations, especially those like Venezuela, which already have harshly criticized what it has viewed as heavy-handed U.S policy and actions.
