Brazil Sends Observer to Monitor Bolivia Crisis

Brazil’s special Presidential adviser for International Affairs, Marco Aurélio Garcia, embarked today for Bolivia, where he will be part of an observers’ mission to accompany the political crisis that has erupted in that country.

This according to information from the Brazilian Ministry of Foreign Relations (Itamaraty). Representatives from Argentina and the United Nations (UN) will also participate in the mission.

According to the Itamaraty, the decision to sent observers from the UN and the two South American countries to keep up with the situation in Bolivia comes in response to an appeal by the Bolivian President, Carlos Mesa, who submitted his resignation request on Monday, June 6. The request will be ruled on today by the Bolivian Congress.

The Itamaraty informed that, in Bolivia, Garcia will travel to Santa Cruz de la Sierra and then to Sucre, where he will meet with lawmakers to converse with that country’s different political forces.

The ex-director of the UN Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean (ECLAC), José Ocampo, is also a member of the mission.
