Brazil's Bolsonaro taking a risk on Venezuela: analysts

Brazil's Bolsonaro taking a risk on Venezuela: analystsBy siding with the United States in recognizing Juan Guaido as Venezuela’s interim president and dismissing Nicolas Maduro as an illegitimate “dictator,” Brazilian far-right leader Jair Bolsonaro is making a risky bet, analysts and former diplomats say. Firstly, he is breaking with Brazil’s tradition of trying to maintain cordial relations with governments of all stripes. Secondly, he is thrusting Brazil into a showdown that, in the words of Rubens Ricupero, a former Brazilian ambassador to the US speaking to the newspaper O Globo, “could have unpredictable consequences for the region” if not quickly resolved.
