article imageEl Salvador refuses to recognize Brazil's new government

By AFP     May 15, 2016 in Politics

El Salvador has said it refuses to recognize the new Brazilian government put in place after President Dilma Rousseff was suspended to face an impeachment trial.

Left-wing President Salvador Sanchez Ceren said in a statement Saturday that Rousseff's ouster had "the appearance of a coup d'etat."

In a speech, the leader of the Central American nation explained: "We have analyzed the situation and taken the decision to not recognize the interim government of Brazil because there was political manipulation."

He said he was recalling El Salvador's ambassador to Brazil, who had already received orders not to attend any official ceremony involving Rousseff's interim replacement, Vice President Michel Temer.
