OAS condemns rerouting of Morales’ plane, calls for explanations from EU states

The Permanent Council of the Organization of American States (OAS) adopted a resolution on Tuesday condemning the incident last week involving the rerouting of the Bolivian President Evo Morales’ plane due to refusals by France, Portugal, Italy and Spain to allow the plane into their airspace on suspicions that Edward Snowden was on board.

The resolution, adopted in solidarity with Bolivia, condemns the actions by the EU states as violations of the rules and principles concerning the inviolability of Heads of States and calls on the them to provide necessary explanations and apologies. The resolution also encourages all parties to continue constructive dialogue on the issue under the rules of international law and the mechanisms for the peaceful settlement of disputes.
