The note indicates that by next June 4 it is expected that the president of that nation, will receive in the Planalto Palace the credentials of the ambassadors of Mexico, Colombia, Paraguay, Saudi Arabia, Peru, Guinea and Indonesia.

“The Military High Command evaluated that the participation of the Venezuelan opposition would be an unnecessary provocation for the Government of Nicolás Maduro, after that it was possible to reduce the tension between the two countries,” says Folha.
Likewise, the military took into account what happened after the failed coup attempt on 30 April. “The military evaluates that the uprising led by Guaidó on April 30 was not successful and weakened its position,” the note added.
