The Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), José Miguel Insulza, met today with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Brazil, Antonio de Agiar Patriota, who is in Antigua, Guatemala, to participate in the forty-third regular session of the OAS General Assembly, which ends today.

The head of the OAS and the Brazilian Foreign Minister discussed the role and relevance of the OAS in the Hemisphere as well as the central theme of the Assembly, “For a Comprehensive Policy against the World Drug Problem of the Americas.” Likewise, they reviewed the results of the process of reflection on strengthening the inter-American human rights system (IAHRS), which culminated last March in a special session of the General Assembly.

Also present at the meeting were the Alternate Representative of Brazil to the OAS, Ambassador Breno Dias da Costa, and the Secretary General’s Chief of Staff, Ambassador Hugo de Zela.
