The Ambassador of the Netherlands to the White House, Rudolf Bekink, today delivered to the Secretary General of the Organization of the American States (OAS), José Miguel Insulza, the letter that accredits him as the new Permanent Observer of his country to the hemispheric body.
During the meeting, the Secretary General thanked Ambassador Bekink for the constant support that the Netherlands gives to the OAS, noting that, with their most recent contribution to the Program of Judicial Facilitators, Holland has “become the most important country” in terms of donations directed to this program.
For his part, the diplomat expressed the interest of his country in further expanding its support for the OAS; an organization with which it shares “common values such as the strengthening of democracy and respect for human rights.”
The Secretary of External Relations of the OAS, Ambassador Alfonso Quiñonez and the Director of International Affairs, Jorge Sanín, were present at the meeting, which took place in the Secretary General’s office in Washington, DC.
