Bolivia asks OAS to approve declaration condemning plane row involving President Morales

Bolivian Interior Minister Carlos Romero is denouncing what he calls an "act of aggression" when Bolivian President Evo Morales' plane was rerouted to Austria amid suspicions that National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden was on board.

Romero on Tuesday urged the Organization of American States' permanent council to approve a declaration demanding that such an incident never be repeated. He also called for apologies from European nations and an explanation of the July 2 incident.

Morales blames Washington for pressuring European countries to refuse to allow his plane to fly through their airspace.

U.S. officials say they only expressed their desire for Snowden to return to the U.S. Italy and Spain denied they closed their airspace and France called it a "technical" error.
