U.S. Ambassador to the Organization of American States (OAS) Carlos Trujillo said that the US government supports the ouster of the former Bolivian President Evo Morales referring to the official Statement of President Trump at the OAS Permanent Council special meeting in Washington on Tuesday.
«We reject this ridiculous claim that the legal nullification of a fraudulent election is somehow a... Еще coup. We would note that the former President Morales actually resigned. Moreover, if there ever was a threat to the democracy, it was conducted by the Bolivian government, led by former President Evo Morales,» Trujillo said during his speech.
He added saying that «Former President Morales has called for resistance, which has resulted in violence and threats to oppositions. He must rescind this call for extrajudicial violence and intimidation. This is a very delicate and difficult situation.»
On Sunday, Bolivian President Evo Morales announced his resignation, following weeks of unrest in the wake of the disputed October 20 presidential election. Morales said he had received threats from opposition leaders and was eventually forced by the country's military to step down.
