President Lula and the Government of Brazil have spoken publicly 90 minutes after the primary information in regards to the motion of Army troops in Bolivia. “We condemn any form of coup d'état in Bolivia and reaffirm our commitment to the people and democracy in the sister country presided over by Luis Arce,” the president wrote in of regional leaders. Minutes earlier than the tweet he declared to the press that he was gathering data by the international ministry and the embassy.

An official word from the Foreign Ministry added that “the tried coup d'état underway in Bolivia, which entails the irregular mobilization of Army troops, [es] “a clear threat to the Bolivian democratic rule of law” and “condemns it in the strongest terms.” Lula plans to make an official go to to the Andean nation on July 9, after the Mercosur summit in Asunción.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, headed by Mauro Vieira, emphasizes that “it is in permanent dialogue with the legitimate authorities of Bolivia and with the governments of other South American countries to reject this serious violation of the constitutional order in Bolivia.” Lula suffered a coup try in 2023, per week after coming to energy for the third time, when 1000’s of Bolsonaro supporters attacked the headquarters of the Three Powers in Brasilia.
