5:22 pm
worst political scandal in brazil's history known as operation car wash that saw dozens of businessmen and politicians arrested and accused of corruption among them former president. in the cold war cool georgia the two of them are so near to zero who will do their job over global saucily be a car because i live in the city there are very souls of all orders. those are going to do the toll go paul it's got to go out. even though he was a member of congress for almost thirty years or so neither was seen as an outsider who promised to fight corruption and crime and help brazil recover from a deep economic crisis now his challenge is to do that without angering crucial allies like china and the arab world with his new foreign policy agenda that's taking his country closer to israel and the united states. still recovering
5:23 pm
from a knife attack last year is hoping to pass crime and pension reforms but many question his lack of policies to fight in. quality and protect minorities i'm in brasilia we've come to the brazilian capital to talk to the man who feels himself as the sword and the shield of president. live vice president of breath you. talk to either zero zero. zero zero zero a first question on this political crisis in venezuela right now. we know that you've been a military attaché in the country do you believe the armed forces will remain loyal to an equal i don't know well what happened. forces in venezuela they are part of this process that's happened there ok my infusion that they are trying to find a solution. because. not only the armored force will have
5:24 pm
weapons and been as well they are do believe. we have drug gangs so the armed forces are bright moment they are trying. to find a solution a peaceful solution ok so that the country can be back on its tracks again but that leadership remains noire why is that. well i don't have enough information to tell you why. i just can't understand the lawyer because they seen mr mudd do is to the man in power. how do you. i mean do you believe that there should be a change in government and that it's well. well. only farted in as it was born with the later presidents of which obvious well proved to be not good for the
5:25 pm
country stronger the oil industry destroyed their internal production ok they put people against people and so today given israel an economy stupidly shattering their social tissue shattering so of course they need a change of government right now i think rationing the building up there is not of tension what you agree or how do you feel about the possibility of the united states intervention well brazil as a long tradition we don't intervene in town or firs of other countries because we don't like aus they have our internal affairs be subject to intervention of now some of the people so i think the united states we'll stay in and push and proceed position like he is today ok making their politics go in economic sanctions and waiting for divan as well as to resolve
5:26 pm
a problem. but right now the u.s. is having an active role in what's happening in venezuela you do not agree with that well they are making a pressure that they can to their oppression in a political size like i said recognizing mr gray door. presence ok make an economic pressure. freezing the assets that even as well as have in the u.s. and now zeus' ryan is pressuring of the humanitarian aid ok to search for a break point in the stalemate that the venezuelans are leaving right now and that tension is cost mostly by getting aid into the country. how do you see. the next few days unfolding i mean once you agree for brazilian soldiers to take that eight intravenous well we must of course not we're not going to inspect the border
5:27 pm
ok what we're doing what are you can do we can put supplies on the your board and if given as well as one they can come and get it but i don't think this will work ok because as you see from rural. river it's almost a thousand kilometers and all these is that empty space in venezuela so there is not enough population there to come to brazil when to to reach for supplies i think that the main points for these humanitarian aid would be the ports and hours of the border was colombia and just announced that they were shutting down the border with president why do you think they're doing this well i see you wouldn't want to stop venezuelan people that are coming to brazil now so if for instance if they see that we're going to put some place in their size of border going to stop this to happen but they can be and they can be real real cool
5:28 pm
because this is not going to happen so there is only going to stay on the brazilian side of avoiding for those who want to cross of course if you if you pass the border it is that act of aggression we are not going to do this verbal good you are the laws of your laws of the law so it is not so nice. but was it good to live with. you possible as it was there's been several changes in brazil foreign policy. the president and yourself took office one of them is also in the relationship with the united states and at some point there were talks about the possibility of a base a military base here in the country is that still an option no this is not an option we never sought to be. use it what mr bush will not have said is there were bays in the current that are can be used or rented for diminishes but not an
5:29 pm
american base and is a deal that has to pass by congress so it's nonsense just another changing foreign policy is that relationship might as well now also talk about moving the embassy to jerusalem is that still the case well what happened is the president wants to have a different kind of relation to see israel and relations from state to state they always search for mutual benefit that's what you want so this question for the changing of the embassy in my opinion some minor question me the president will decide about d.s. it will be after i next sauced if this thirty of the main. problems that can happen we still is because it could generate tensions with allies to with arab countries along on a fad this is one of the points but there are some other points to which are well we have some agreements now and also the problem of the un bric
5:30 pm
a commission of both countries ok the palestinians and israelis i think this is not a big issue today but the lead story is the divorce market you know at all the a good. yeah for those who are as it does who knows. if those two are cute but i guess upon their. minds about this new computer that is with you this is you do more than they are here do you like our barcode there was yet you defend your budget is it given that he is apologize. or because you not even know me or to do this if you listen you do put their due to the regret is not good your view does divorce it is destroyed if i did it was eleven sit with those little guys not separately but so so like i said whatever the space was you being you are going to jihad legit is that your thought there that you see the legitimate their fears are one of the reasons why you were elected was
5:31 pm
because the brazilian people weren't tired of corruption. we were talking to many people in brazil and they said that things needed to change but yet one member of the cabinet cabinet was recently fired because of corruption what do you think should be the response by the government to things are engaged in corrupt act for example well i think that the member of the government that was fired was not for cover ups and exclusively the problem was a question of confidence in the relationship that he had with our president but our government like to say it was elected to fight and compete against the administration and corruption we are not going to deal and pass our hands in the heads of people that commit this kind of crime and as you see you know mr morris sent out a very have package dealing exactly this kind of crime we are not going to
5:32 pm
to accept this well where he joined the military during that question what's your opinion about those times and. so there are very good times ok. say we didn't have a dictatorship we had a period of military presence ok people that came from the army they had rain some years an instrument had gave them a bigger. we were in the middle of the cold war we had people here there wanted to install in brazil another kind of dictatorship like and see it is believed in their marxist. marxist. who often meant ok so. during that period ok in the fight that happened. in both
5:33 pm
sides some five hundred people died in a county of ninety million so it was of has softened problems when you see two dated sixty thousand people were murdered in brazil. what a people were tortured and what count and couldn't vote for president well that was the moment they could vote for their representatives in congress for instance in the one nine hundred seventy four elections the opposition won almost every place in the congress ok then in the early eighty's when we had elections for governors almost every state was ruled for a position in government so i think it's history and allies do this in some more for twenty to thirty years when most actors will be gone when the president and yourself are elected an. actress and brazil are afraid and they are saying.
