    Caracas, Venezuela( CNN) Venezuela will withdraw from the Organization of American States( OAS ), according to its foreign minister, who announced government decisions on national television.

    Foreign Minister Delcy Rodriguez told VTV state television Wednesday that the beleaguered country, which is facing huge civil unrest, would take the unprecedented step of leaving the pan-American organization over what it sees as tries by foreign governments to interfere in its affairs by sidelining with the opponent in the latest wave of protests in the country.

    “In the OAS, we announced that if these intrusive, arbitrary, illicit, misdirected and rude actions were to persist against the sovereignty of our country, we would immediately proceed to denounce the letter of OAS and to initiate the definite withdrawal of Venezuela form this regional organisation, ” Rodriguez said.
