Call for Respect for Constitutional Order in Bolivia

2003/1032

The American people and their government support Bolivia’s democratically elected president, Gonzalo Sanchez De Lozada, in his efforts to build a more prosperous and just future for all Bolivians.

We call on all Bolivians to reject confrontation that could lead to violence and injury. The international community understands and supports the legitimate interests of all the Bolivian people, and we urge them to express and promote those only through democratic and peaceful means.

All of Bolivia’s political leaders should publicly express their support for democratic and constitutional order. The international community and the United States will not tolerate any interruption of constitutional order and will not support any regime that results from undemocratic means.
