Why do Brazil, Chile and Colombia want China to solve the Venezuelan crisis?

Published 2019-07-30 16:30:41 by Paul Antonopoulos in Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Eurasia, Headline-News, Latin-America, Venezuela

MOSCOW – Following the logic of the scenario set by the US, countries like Brazil, Chile and Colombia are not interested in resolving the Venezuelan crisis, says Vladimir Kharlamenko, an expert at the Latin American Institute (Moscow). Perhaps most interesting in Kharlamenko’s opinion is that Brasilia, Bogota and Santiago were the first countries to follow Washington in recognizing the self-proclamation of Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó as the incumbent president of Venezuela and demanding the resignation of the legitimate Venezuelan president, Nicolás Maduro. On July 28, as part of an official visit, Colombian President Iván Duque Marquez was in China,… Continue ->
