The Permanent Council of the Organization of American States (OAS) bid farewell today to Secretary General José Miguel Insulza, who expressed pride in the work that has been done in the decade that he has led the hemispheric institution. “The Organization is much stronger now than when I arrived,” he said.

In his last appearance before the Council, Secretary General Insulza reiterated the need for the Organization to adapt to the challenges of the present day, and recalled the essence of his proposal on the Strategic Vision that he presented three years ago, and that the Organization approved last year: the OAS must be “an inclusive Organization, of sovereign and diverse countries, legitimized by democracy, acting on the same hemispheric agenda, in full condition of equality. That is what is demanded of the OAS of the 21st century, far from what was demanded of it during the Cold War.”
