UNITED NATIONS – Uruguay rejects any “hint of military intervention” and “interventionist and warmongering approaches” in Latin America, Uruguayan Foreign Minister Rodolfo Nin Novoa told the UN General Assembly on Monday.
“Latin America, as a bloc, has repudiated any hint of military intervention in any Latin American country to settle internal conflicts, whatever their intensity is,” Nin Novoa said.
The foreign minister did not say which country he was referring to, but US President Donald Trump said on Aug. 11 that he was not ruling out the “military option” in Venezuela.
“These interventions, as the historical experience of our continent shows, have only left violence, poverty and long-lasting instability in their wake,” the Uruguayan foreign minister said.
“Latin America is solidly united against these interventionist and warmongering approaches, which are neither rational nor wise,” Nin Novoa said.
