T&T abstains as OAS votes to suspend Venezuela

The Organization of American States has passed a resolution to call an Extraordinary Assembly to vote on suspending Venezuela from the 34-member group after President Nicolas Maduro’s widely condemned re-election last month.

The OAS’s General Assembly in Washington voted, with 19 member states in favor, four against and 11 abstaining, to take the first step to suspending the South American nation.

Trinidad and Tobago was among the countries that abstained from the vote.
