Presidents of South America express their differences on Venezuela

The “Brasilia Consensus”, in the second of its nine points, includes a commitment “to democracy and human rights, sustainable development and social justice, the rule of law and institutional stability, the defense of sovereignty and non-interference in internal affairs”. .

This point outraged Uruguayan President Luis Lacalle Pou, who said in his first speech at the summit that this article did not fully reflect the Venezuelan situation.

“Clearly we don’t have the same definition, which I think is one in the Royal Spanish Academy, of what constitutes respect for institutions, human rights and democracy,” the Uruguayan president said in a video posted to his profile from Instagram.

Lacalle Pou also protested to Lula, who the day before, during a bilateral meeting with Maduro, described criticism of Venezuela’s lack of democracy or human rights violations as “stories”.
