“We must adopt a stance in defense of the Barbados agreements”, defended Dirceu, in reference to the agreements between the opposition and Maduro, signed in October 2023 and which established the election rules.

“But we have to be careful that this does not turn into an intervention in Venezuela’s internal affairs. We need to preserve non-intervention and prevent diplomacy from exchanging messages of mutual condemnation. This does not help either the Venezuelan democratic process or the relationship with Brazil”, he said.

Here are the main excerpts:

There is a possibility that Republican Donald Trump will be elected in the USA. In the past, we have already seen a positive relationship between another Republican, George W. Bush, and Lula. Mr. Do you think this can, in some way, happen again or at least avoid a confrontation?

The US has national interests. Brazil is a power in itself. China has more interest in Brazil than the USA. Obviously, a relationship with Trump will not be easy. But Brazil is able to maintain a certain autonomy in relation to Trump’s policies. With Bush, we had the war on terror, the situation in Iraq. And Brazil never supported this, it had an autonomous stance.

In Trump’s case, he could change policy towards Venezuelans. There was an attempted coup resulting from sanctions and a civil war, which explains a lot of what is happening today.
