At this time, Secretary of State Pompeo will be visiting Chile, Paraguay, Peru and Colombia. Pompeo is said to be going to the Cucuta border with shared with Venezuela, during his Colombia visit. The international media have claimed that Pompeo is on a mission, to garner support for the military action against the Maduro government in Venezuela during his Latin American visit. Nevertheless, Brazilian President Bolsonaro does not agree with the  United States stance.

During an interview on the radio, Bolsonaro said that the military option should not be exercised against Venezuela. If the armies of other countries entered Venezuela, the Maduro’s military would take to the streets and start a guerrilla war. Furthermore, Bolsonaro warned that if a guerrilla war is triggered in Venezuela, it will be a long-drawn conflict. In that scenario, another Cuba or North Korea may be created in Latin America.

President Bolsonaro said that the United States and Brazil were considering the option. Previously, the United States and the US supported Venezuelan President Juan Guaido had appealed to the Venezuelan military to reject President Maduro’s orders.
