The president of Chile, Gabriel Boric, hardened his tone when criticizing Lula this Tuesday (30). The Brazilian president said on Monday (29) that Nicolás Maduro would need to “build a narrative” to improve the Venezuelan leader’s reputation in the international community.

“It is not a matter of narrative as President Lula said yesterday. It is a human rights issue,” he said. “I go to places where people don’t even know where Venezuela is, but they know that Venezuela has a problem with democracy”.

Gabriel Boric is in Brazil to meet with heads of state from South American countries. The speech took place during a press conference by the Chilean outside the Itamaraty Palace.

President Lula defended his idea of ​​creating a “Venezuelan narrative” after a bilateral meeting with the president of Venezuela. “If I want to win a battle, I need to build a narrative to destroy my potential enemy. You know the narrative that was built against Venezuela, of anti-democracy and authoritarianism,” he said.

Contrary to Lula’s thesis, the president of Uruguay, Luis Lacalle Pou, also criticized the Brazilian’s speech. But this time, the questioning took place in front of the PT, during the meeting with the South American leaders. “I was surprised when you said that what happens in Venezuela is a narrative”, he said directly to the president of Brazil.
