“There is an obsession that if Brazil does not agree with the United States a beam will fall on our heads. There are not major divergences” according to the Brazilian minister, Amorim.
What really matters he added, is that Brazilian President Lula da Silva and Obama always manage to discuss issues in a very friendly tone.
Amorim also pointed out that the Organization of American States (OAS) is not divided on the issue. The Brazilian position is shared by an overwhelming majority of Latinamerican and Caribbean countries, while only the US and Panama are willing to accept Sunday’s results as legitimate.
“The coup d’etat cannot legitimate a government, but we will not turn this into a confrontation point. It is not in the interests of the United States that Honduras becomes (exclusively) linked to them,” said Amorim.
