Guaido's envoy occupies Venezuela's OAS seat for first time

Washington, Apr 17 (efe-epa).- Gustavo Tarre, the envoy appointed by opposition leader Juan Guaido, on Wednesday for the first time occupied Venezuela's seat at the Organization of American States, a position that will allow him to actively participate in the organization with his vote.

Washington, Apr 17 (efe-epa).- Gustavo Tarre, the envoy appointed by opposition leader Juan Guaido, on Wednesday for the first time occupied Venezuela's seat at the Organization of American States, a position that will allow him to actively participate in the organization with his vote.

Tarre took Venezuela's seat during a session of the OAS Permanent Council to welcome Ecuadorian President Lenin Moreno.

On his Twitter account, Tarre - who assumed the role of Venezuela's ambassador to the OAS on April 10 - posted a photograph in which he can be seen seated at Venezuela's desk with the sign designating the country, along with a small national flag.

"Seated in Venezuela's seat representing the democratic people of our country," he tweeted.

Tarre, an attorney by profession, is seated between the representatives of Guatemala and Grenada and is accompanied by his team, including Maria Alexandra Sanglade, who was named advisory minister and is seated in a chair behind the envoy, and Rafael Castillo, the first secretary.

The OAS Permanent Council on April 9 approved a resolution to "accept the appointment of Mr. Gustavo Tarre as permanent representative, designated by the National Assembly, until new elections can be held and the inauguration of a democratically elected government."

The text identifies Tarre as a representative of the National Assembly, which is presided over by Guaido, and does not mention Venezuela, but the countries that approved the resolution and the OAS General Secretariat have interpreted the text as a recognition so that he may act and function as ambassador.

Venezuelan diplomats loyal to President Nicolas Maduro did not attend the OAS session on Wednesday.

However, those diplomats have said that the seat belongs to them until April 27, when the request made by the Caracas government two years ago to leave the organization will become effective.

Diplomatic sources told EFE that next week a Permanent Council session will be held in which Tarre will present himself as Venezuela's new ambassador and the crisis in that country will be discussed.

The OAS on Jan. 10 declared Maduro's inauguration to a second six-year term to be illegitimate, but it has not approved any resolution specifically recognizing Guaido as Venezuela's president.

Bilaterally, most of the OAS member states have recognized Guaido as Venezuela's interim president, and he had also received the support of OAS Secretary-General Luis Almagro.
