At the OAS Brazil Reaffirms Stand Against Terror

This week, at the headquarters of the Organization of American States (OAS), in Washington (USA), the Brazilian government submitted the ratification instruments of the Inter-American Anti-Terrorism Convention – a hemispheric treaty approved by the member states on June 3, 2002.

The secretary-general of the OAS, José Miguel Insulza, received the instruments from ambassador Osmar Chohfi, Brazil’s permanent representative to the organization.

In the act of delivering the documents, Chohfi affirmed that the ratification of the convention by Brazil does not represent an isolated instance. According to the ambassador, "on September 16 of this year, at the United Nations, the Brazilian government submitted the ratification instrument of the International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism. On the same occasion, Brazil became a signatory to the International Convention for the Suppression of Nuclear Terrorism."

Taken together, these initiatives reaffirm Brazil’s commitment to the struggle against terrorism. Since June, 2002, when the Inter-American Anti-Terrorist Convention was approved at the General Assembly of the OAS in Bridgetown (Barbados), it has been ratified by 13 member states.
