Brasilia - The US Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, will visit the Brazilian city of Boa Vista, on the border with Venezuela, today, where he will carry out a hostile act against the constitutional government of Nicolás Maduro, reported portal Brasil 247.
The news site assured that the visit reinforces the submission of the government of Jair Bolsonaro to the United States, which at one point had national aid in an attempt to invade Venezuela.
From different sectors of Brazilian society, voices repudiate the presence of Washington's chief of diplomacy, with clear intentions to attack a sovereign people, in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic.
In this regard, federal parliament member Glauber Braga wrote: 'Mr. Mike Pompeo, we do not want war and the looting of your government here in Latin America! All solidarity with the Venezuelan people!'
He insisted that he 'rejects the presence of Donald Trump's Secretary of State on the border between Brazil and Venezuela.'
He warned that 'this is an illegitimate attempt to pressure Venezuela. They are looking for oil, natural wealth, the largest fuel reserve in the world and we cannot accept that the Brazilian territory be used for that, even for a possible escalation of the war.' remarked.
In an outraged tone, Senator Telmário Mota, for his part, sent a letter to President Jair Bolsonaro in protest for handing over Boa Vista for the Trump government to carry out, from Brazilian soil, new provocations and threats to Venezuela.
Mota considered the visit as an invasion 'of the soil of my Roraima by the Secretary of State of the United States, former director of the CIA Mike Pompeo, encouraged by Foreign Minister Ernesto Araújo, to promote acts of provocation against a neighboring country and friend.'
He noted that it is an event 'unworthy, hostile, unnecessary, without any link to the national interest. It is another media act aimed at promoting the electoral interests of the Republican Party on the eve of the elections in that country.'
The senator invoked 'relevant aspects of the long history of Brazilian diplomatic relations with Venezuela, a sister country with which we maintain secular and peaceful economic, social and cultural ties.'
He denounced Araújo's actions as 'totally alien to the tradition of Brazilian diplomacy.'
The Workers' Party denounced that with this visit the far-right administration of Bolsonaro once again demonstrates its obedience to the dictates of the Trump government, 'always being open to following their orders and receiving their representatives in our territory, in a continuous process of injury to our sovereignty '.
Pompeyo included in his tour other nations such as Suriname, Guyana and Colombia, the latter like Brazil, allies of the White House in their hostility towards Venezuela.
