A ten point proposal by the Venezuelan delegation, headed by Delci Eloína Rodríguez Gómez, was unanimously rejected by The General Committee of the Organization of American States (OAS).Mexican delegation sources said that the rejection was due to the fact that the proposal was turned in with a lack of formality and in an untimely manner.[caption id="attachment_63823" align="alignnone" width="1024"] Venezuelan Foreign Affairs Secretary Delcy Eloína Rodríguez Gómez during the General Assembly of the Organization if American States (OAS), in Cancun, Quintana Roo, June 20, 2017.
