OAS: Special Meeting of the Permanent Council (round 3) [UPDATED]

This is huge. The OAS Permanent Council approved the first resolution on Venezuela in 15 years. Check back tomorrow for a full analysis of the proceedings.

This was Bolivia’s response:

A resolution was approved with 17 members, 4 abstaining, 13 absent.
