NYUSI EXPRESSES SOLIDARITY WITH BRAZIL
Maputo, Jan 11 (AIM) – Mozambican President Filipe Nyusi has expressed his solidarity with his Brazilian counterpart, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, in the face of Sunday’s violent attacks against Brazilian institutions, stating that they reflect extreme denial of democratic rules.
On Sunday, the city of Brasilia, Brazil’s federal capital, was the scene of acts of violence and vandalism against the installations of the National Congress, the Federal Supreme Court and the Presidential Palace.
Nyusi, in his statement, rejected the attacks on democratic institutions in Brazil, led by individuals who, using violence, are seeking at all costs to reverse the course of history and the sovereign decision of the Brazilian people.
According to Nyusi, these are unjustified acts that reflect the extreme denial of democratic rules and total disregard for the expressed will of the majority of the Brazilian people, who clearly awarded victory to Lula da Silva, in the recent presidential election.
“I would like to express our total solidarity with the brotherly people of Brazil, expressing sincere wishes that this stormy moment be quickly overcome, allowing the country to firmly pursue its agenda of development and harmonious coexistence internally and in the concert of nations”, Nyusi’s message reads.
Nyusi also welcomed the energetic measures of the Brazilian government aimed at putting an end to this attack on the democratic order. He said he has full faith in the strength and consistency of Brazil’s democratic institutions, as well as the perseverance of its people so that democracy emerges victorious in the face of this challenge.
Leader from around the world have already expressed their support for Lula da Silva, the president-elect. in the face of events that have already led to the arrest of more than a thousand people.
