According to a statement from the Itamaraty, read by the spokesperson, the aid “will be made available in Brazilian territory”, in the cities of Boa Vista and Pacaraima, in Roraima, “for the government by the government in charge Juan Guaido, for Venezuelan trucks driven by Venezuelans .”

The Senate president also said he would meet on Tuesday evening at the Senate’s presidential residence with some governors. He wants to hear the point of view of each state on the pension reform.

– The meeting is to listen to the governors about their feeling of what is happening in relation to the pension reform. What they are thinking and what role the Union can have – David said, adding that the states are supporting the Social Security reform because “they are broken.”

Already on this Wednesday (20), Alcolumbre returns to the Planalto Palace to debate with Bolsonaro the pension reform and the anticrime proposal of the Minister of Justice, Sergio Moro.
