Brazilian Minister of Foreign Affairs Luiz Alberto Figueiredo lobbied on Monday for rapport between the Venezuelan government and the opposition to arrive at a democratic outcome to the political standoff in Venezuela.

During an interview with daily newspaper Folha de São Paulo, Figueiredo said that his government is in line with the Common Market of the South (Mercosur). He pointed out that the regional trade bloc repudiates violence "of whatever source" and encouraged the parties to dialogue.

According to the Brazilian minister, the notice "is not a message" for Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro, but "reaffirmation" of the need for a democratic resolution of the crisis, Efe quoted.

"President (of Venezuela Nicolás) Maduro does not need messages. This is not a message, but reaffirmation of Mercosur as to the importance of dealing all matters within a democratic framework. Nobody is saying that there is specific liability. Furthermore, we have read that state agents are being arrested in Venezuela, accused of deaths of demonstrators," he clarified.

Minister Figueiredo does not think that the Brazilian government has kept silence with regard to Venezuela. Rather, he claimed that Brazil continues acting as middleman between Venezuela and the United States.

Figueiredo met last Friday with his Venezuelan counterpart Elías Jaua. The Venezuelan Foreign Minister was on visit in Brazil as part of his South American tour to explain his government position in relation to ongoing events in Venezuela.
