Guaido backers enter Venezuela embassy in Brasilia, sparking standoffSupporters of Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido gained access to the country’s embassy in Brasilia on Wednesday morning, leading to a standoff with backers of leftist President Nicolas Maduro, according to diplomatic representatives. The confrontation threatened to create a diplomatic crisis just as the BRICS summit of major emerging economies kicked off in the Brazilian capital. The embassy standoff highlights stark differences between Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, who has recognized Guaido as Venezuela’s leader, and Maduro’s Chinese and Russian allies, who are meeting with Bolsonaro this week.
