On its official website, a statement signed by its president, Gleisi Hoffmann, extends its rejection to the Brazilian position of 2019, when, pressured by the Trump administration, the diplomacy of President Jair Bolsonaro voted in favor of the blockade.

The press release refers that on June 23 ‘the UN member countries maintained their majority and uncontested position on condemning the blockade, with the following result: 184 votes in favor, two against (United States and Israel) and three abstentions (Brazil, Colombia and Ukraine).’

The PT denounces, ‘in 2019, Brazil was even more explicit and voted against the condemnation, breaking with our diplomatic tradition adopted since 1992 and following the guidelines of the then Foreign Minister Ernesto Araujo and his total submission to former President Donald Trump.’

According to the PT, ‘this apparent change of position between the two votes still does not reflect the true historic legacy of our diplomacy.’

On the contrary, the PT representatives state, ‘it portrays the inability of our current government to assume an independent and sovereign position, respecting the years of world-renowned work of the professionals of Itamaraty (Foreign Ministry).’

By abstaining, they note, ‘the Brazilian government preferred to remain silent in the face of a flagrant act of illegality against the United Nations Charter and international law.’
