In this sense, Vecchio urged the international community to initiate measures for the welfare of regional countries.
The OAS on Wednesday called on Nicaragua to immediately release presidential candidates and political prisoners in the November election.
Canada, Antigua and Barbuda, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador, the United States, Paraguay and Uruguay approved the resolution, with 26 votes and 7 abstentions.
