Brazil is ready to attack Venezuela if Essequibo is invaded

Correio Braziliense reports that Brazil plans to deploy additional military units to strengthen its presence on the border with Venezuela and Guyana. The decision comes amid an escalating dispute between Venezuela and Guyana over the Essequibo region.

According to the report, the Brazilian army will send additional wheeled armored vehicles to strengthen the borders. However, the exact scenario for Brazil's possible intervention in the conflict is still unclear. One assumption is that if Venezuela were to invade Guyana through Brazil, the latter would have the right of self-defense under Article 51 of the UN Charter.

The Brazilian press also notes that the country's authorities have been considering the possibility of conflict in this region since 1982. At the same time, local media express skepticism regarding Venezuela’s military potential.
