Newsline: Bolivia, Ecuador and Venezuela Recall Ambassadors from Brazil

Following the controversial vote in the Brazilian Senate that impeached President Dilma Rousseff, a move that many equated with a soft coup, several South American nations including Bolivia, Ecuador and Venezuela have recalled their ambassadors from Brasília. The Venezuelan government went a step further and announced that they are “freezing the political and diplomatic relations with the current Brazilian government that emerged from an illegal and unconstitutional parliamentary coup.” Nicaragua soon joined the others in recalling their ambassador while Bolivia’s Evo Morales took to Twitter to denounce the “parliamentary coup against Brazilian democracy.” Morales said that his nation would join several other regional states in bringing the issue to discussion before the Organization of American States (OAS).
