The federal government is going to send, in the coming days, a mission to Venezuela to start the process of reopening the Brazilian embassy in Caracas, capital of the neighboring country, informed the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The group, which will be headed by Ambassador Flávio Macieira, should assess the physical conditions of the Brazilian embassy and consulate, in addition to the ambassador’s residence, in Venezuela, the ministry said. Furthermore, it must take logistical and personnel measures so that the representations are reopened.

The mission is part of the actions of the government of President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT) to resume normal diplomatic relations with the government of Nicolás Maduro.

The management of former President of the Republic Jair Bolsonaro (PL) did not recognize Maduro as president of Venezuela, and treated Juan Guaidó, Maduro’s opponent who declared himself president, as the country’s head of state. In 2020, the federal government removed embassy staff in Caracas as a response to the Maduro regime.

Now, Lula intends to reopen the embassy as soon as possible, although there is still no set date for that.
