Brazil wants more pressure on Venezuela
During a meeting of the Lima Group (a 14-country body
created to find solutions for the Venezuela crisis) later today, Brazil’s vice president Hamilton Mourão will argue for the need to increase the diplomatic pressure on Nicolás Maduro’s regime, and boost international support for opposition leader Juan Guaidó—who proclaimed himself the country’s legitimate president. However, Mr. Mourão will stress that no aggressive military action should be taken.
