The president of the Brazilian Chamber of Deputies, Rodrigo Maia, met on Wednesday with his counterpart, the president of the Venezuelan National Assembly (AN), Julio Borges, and reported that a meeting of Latin American parliamentarians would be convened to “face authoritarianism of Nicolás Maduro’ government.”
The Brazilian congressmen blasted the recent decisions of Venezuelan authorities preventing some AN deputies from leaving the country, Efe cited.
“We want to denounce the serious fact of taking a deputy away his passport, even the president of the Foreign Relations Committee of the (Venezuelan) National Assembly, Luis Florido,” Maia said in a joint press conference with Borges.
Borges had plans to meet also with the president of the Brazilian Senate, Eunicio Oliveira, and Foreign Minister José Serra.
