{{Wikipage|companyName =Organization_of_American_States |description =The Organization of American States (Spanish: Organización de los Estados Americanos, Portuguese: Organização dos Estados Americanos, French: Organisation des États américains), or the OAS or OEA, is a continental organization that was founded on 30 April 1948, for the purposes of solidarity and cooperation among its member states within the Western Hemisphere. During the Cold War, this meant opposing leftism as a European influence; since the 1990s, the organization has focused on election monitoring. Headquartered in the United States' capital Washington, D.C., the OAS's members are the 35 independent states of the Americas[clarification needed].
As of 26 May 2015, the Secretary General of OAS is Luis Almagro.[1] Cite error: There are <ref group=Note> tags on this page, but the references will not show without a Template:Reflist
