    Washington, March 6 . AFP ) - . Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), José Miguel Insulza , estimated Wednesday that there is no reason to implement regional instruments of democratic restoration in Venezuela , shaken by violent protests.
    "There is no reason to apply any of the OAS instruments for the part of the breakdown of democracy ," Insulza said, citing articles of the Inter-American Democratic Charter during a talk at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington.
    Although there are problems noted that the lack of independence of the judiciary and restrictions on freedom of expression, the head of the agency said that no American notes that there has been " a clear and massive destruction of democracy in Venezuela " .
    The situation in Venezuela , where a month of violent protests have left 18 dead , 260 injured and dozens of complaints of violations of human rights will be discussed Thursday at a private meeting of the Permanent Council of the Organization of American States.
    The meeting, requested by Panama and closed to the press , will focus on a proposal of the Central American country to call a consultation of foreign ministers to evaluate the Venezuelan case .
    But this is not a date to implement the Inter-American Democratic Charter, which empowers the OAS or one of its members to start discussions to analyze a situation of democratic order in any country in the region, said Insulza.
    The Secretary-General welcomed the meeting, but expressed his misgivings about the delay and the private nature of the appointment.
    "The situation today is much more serious than two weeks ago ," Insulza said in the conversation, exclusively dedicated to Venezuelan topic.
    But the head of the OAS expressed doubts of reaching to convene the meeting of foreign ministers and said that it is likely that Thursday's meeting will reiterate the calls for dialogue and an end to violence in Venezuela .
    However, he stressed that he would support sending an OAS mission to investigate the facts and try to bring the government and the opposition to a dialogue.
    "I think a mission would be helpful if both parties agree ," he said . But "we are far from that ," he added .
