The OAS Inaugurates Its Assembly In Lima, Dedicated To The Arms Race In The Region

first_imgBy Dialogo June 08, 2010 The Organization of American States (OAS) opened its fortieth ordinary general assembly in Lima, in the presence of thirty-three foreign ministers or representatives of its member states, come together to debate regional arms control and Honduras’s return to the organization. The general assembly was inaugurated by Peruvian president Alan García and OAS secretary-general José Miguel Insulza, the latter of whom expressed his gratitude for “the member states’ trust” in having re-elected him for another five years starting in 2010. Brazilian foreign minister Celson Amorim was one of the most prominent absentees, despite the fact that the OAS organizers had said that he would be present in Lima. The OAS secretary-general advocated in a speech for Honduras’s return to the Western Hemisphere community, maintaining that this “would make it possible to better address the human-rights situation in that country.” “Honduras continues to be suspended, and we continue to work for its restoration,” he noted, emphasizing that for many countries in the region, Honduras’s return is conditional on ousted president Manuel Zelaya’s return to his country, as a citizen and without legal problems, from his current exile in the Dominican Republic. Despite this, Insulza highlighted the fact that the Americas “are on their way to establishing themselves as one of the world’s two democratic regions.” With regard to arms control, which will be addressed as part of the assembly’s central theme, “Peace, Security, and Cooperation in the Americas,” Insulza recalled that “the Americas are the world’s first region free of nuclear arms.” The high-ranking official welcomed the Peruvian initiative to promote the topic of disarmament and emphasized that concern about “military spending is a significant part of the OAS’s agenda.” “For this reason there exist trust-building and security measures, complete registers of arms purchases, and annual reports,” among other measures, Insulza said, with García and the region’s foreign ministers in the audience. Despite the existence of arms-control treaties, Insulza lamented that only three countries have ratified them, for which reason he said that he “would like those agreements to be ratified by all countries and would like them to issue reports on their arms acquisitions every year.” President García defended his proposal to rein in military spending and urged greater transparency in a region “where poverty continues to demand greater investment, and arms turn into junk.” “If we are the most peaceful region in the world, for what purpose have we bought more arms? It’s a senseless race to see enemies where there aren’t any. We will continue plowing the sea until the people demand from their governments that they put an end to this race,” García commented. The ceremony concluded with a reception for the participating delegations, hosted by the Peruvian government. The general assembly will have its first plenary session at the ministerial level Monday, with another ministerial session Tuesday. The meeting was held under tight security, with 4,000 police personnel, according to the Peruvian interior minister, to prevent terrorist attacks. In addition, more than 500 journalists were accredited to cover the general assembly.last_img read more
