Brazil Reiterates Support for Venezuela

The head of Brazil’s Presidential Civilian Advisory Staff, Minister José Dirceu, met, yesterday, with President Hugo Chávez, in the Venezuelan capital, Caracas. The purpose of the trip was to resume political conversations with the Venezuelan President.

The presidential advisor for international affairs, Marco Aurélio Garcia, said that “it is normal for the Civilian Advisory Office to be conversing with Chávez, given the 26 agreements Brazil has with that country.”


“Our policy with regard to Venezuela has been set for a long time. Even before Lula’s Administration got underway officially, we already had a presence in that country, and we have maintained this line without interruptions, for the good of the Venezuelans and, most of all, of South America,” Garcia remarked at the opening of the seminar, “The Growth of Brazilian International Relations,” commemorating the 50th anniversary of the Brazilian Institute of International Relations (IBRI).


According to the Presidential advisor, Venezuela is a country that has experienced tremendous upheavals and has managed to resolve all of them within an institutional framework. “Brazil has contributed to this stability in the region and will continue to do so,” he added.
