La Paz, Aug 6 (Prensa Latina) Bolivia’s President Evo Morales announced today he expects to propose during the upcoming meeting of the Union of South American Nations (UNASUR) to take the United States to international courts to enforce human rights.
In an interview with La Razon newspaper, the president said the decision aims to prevent the recurrence of incidents such as
that occurred to him in Europe, where several countries canceled the flight permission of his plane, a decision Bolivia attributed
to the White
“I will raise at the upcoming UNASUR meeting that all presidents define to take (the United States) to international courts to enforce human rights and international treaties. Such provision is based so that (what happen to me)
never happens with no president in the world,” he said.
Morales said that although a restoration of ambassadors between the two countries, (Bolivia expelled it in 2008), is possible, the relations between Washington and La Paz will be based on distrust.
Morales initially trusted in President Barack Obama for coming from a discriminated sector, but then that hope of an improvement in the northern nation was broken, he said.
Bolivia and the United States maintain diplomatic relations to the lowest level since 2008, when Morales expelled the then ambassador Philip Goldberg and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in that country.
