Brazil's Temer announces 'intervention' in state bordering Venezuela

Updated: 08-12-2018 04:56 IST
Brazil's President Michel Temer said on Friday he had reached an agreement with the governor of Roraima state, Suely Campos, for a federal "intervention" in the state that borders Venezuela.

Temer said via Twitter that he and the governor came to the conclusion that a negotiated intervention would be the best solution to "pacify" the situation in Roraima.

Waves of Venezuelan migrants have been entering the border area in recent months.

It was not immediately clear what the intervention would entail. (Reporting by Marcelo Teixeira, Editing by Rosalba O'Brien)
