Venezuela freezes Brazil ties after Dilma Rousseff removal

Caracas, Aug 31, Venezuela announced today it was withdrawing its ambassador from Brazil and freezing ties with its neighbour in response to the removal from office of president Dilma Rousseff.


The foreign ministry condemned Rousseff's being stripped of office after an impeachment trial in the Brazilian Senate as a "parliamentary coup d'etat."

Venezuela "has decided to definitively withdraw its ambassador in the Federal Republic of Brazil, and to freeze political and diplomatic relations with the government that emerged from this parliamentary coup," it said in a statement.
