Army commander Gen. Edson Leal Pujol said on Tuesday that the situation on the Venezuelan border with Brazil was quieter.

Fortunately the moods settled there, for all of us. Obviously we all want peace, no one wants to be confused, he said as he left a meeting with Senate President Davi Alcolumbre. The general reaffirmed the position of Brazil and the Lima Group for non-military intervention in the neighboring country.

President of Mexico does not rule out the opening of a dialogue on Venezuela

Despite the quieter climate, Pujol gave no prediction of when the Brazilian mission in the source will be closed. We are there with two missions. The first is our [refugee] welcome operation, which will continue. Also [there is another] to guarantee law and order, in an operation requested by the state government [de Roraima]. 

Pension Reform

The general did not want to comment on how the talks are about the proposal that the Executive must send to Congress to reform the security of the military. This is an issue of the President of the Executive, it does not concern me, he said.
