This Tuesday, November 3rd, Venezuela participated as a full member in the Coordination Commission of the Amazon Cooperation Council (CCOOR).
The meeting was also attended by the ambassadors of the other member countries (Colombia, Brazil, Ecuador, Bolivia, Peru, Guyana and Suriname) who welcomed Ambassador María Teresa Belandria as head of mission and the only Venezuelan authority recognized in Brazil.
This is the first intervention by the legitimate embassy in application of the regulations governing the Amazon Cooperation Treaty Organization (ACTO), which states that the seat can only be occupied by the diplomatic representation accredited to the Brazilian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Venezuela is a founding country of the ACTO, which was created in 1995.
Thanks to the efforts of the Venezuelan Embassy in Brazil and the support of the other members of the ACTO, our country recovers its right to speak and vote in this important organism in defense and protection of the Amazon region.
