In addition, he announced an additional $ 348 million as "humanitarian assistance" to resolve the crisis in his country.

In a report issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, he said: “Between 1999 and 2018, Brazil's diplomatic experience with Venezuela was unpleasant. This is an example of ideological blindness and slavery. The material and moral interests of the people are very disadvantageous. "
In a statement published on the official website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Araujo defended the opposition of the Bolsonaro government to the Chavista dictatorship, as he noted that it had decided to “break relations with Hugo Chávez and Nicolás Maduro during the indifferent silence and cooperation shameless criminal in that regime. This may be the worst humanitarian tragedy in the history of our region in two decades. "
The foreign minister also assured that "Maduro works permanently to undermine democracy throughout South America" and denounced the persistence in Venezuela of "a regime allied with drug trafficking, terrorism and organized crime that threatens the security of the region."
“Making human rights prevail, as stipulated in the Constitution, demands that Brazil continue to raise its voice more than ever to expose the suffering of Venezuelans to world attention and work for the redemocratization of Venezuela, the only way to return to respect human rights in that country ”, he stated. And he sentenced: "We would violate the Constitution if we closed our eyes to the Venezuelan tragedy."
