President Michel Temer said in a televised address on Tuesday that Venezuela’s “tragic” situation threatened peace across South America. Millions of Venezuelans have fled their country due to hyperinflation, and food and medicine shortages. Brazil’s move follows recent border clashes between locals and Venezuelans. On Tuesday, he signed a decree which will deploy soldiers for two weeks along the border and federal roads of its northern state of Roraima. “The problem of Venezuela is no longer one of internal politics. It is a threat to the harmony of the whole continent,” Mr Temer said.
