Ban calls for dialogue, calm in Brazil


United Nations  –  UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon on Thursday called for calm and dialogue among all parties in Brazil.

President Dilma Rousseff was stripped of her presidential duties for up to six months on Thursday after the Senate voted to begin an impeachment trial over alleged manipulation of government accounts.

Ban in a statement in New York, said he had been following closely recent events in Brazil.

He said he believed the country’s authorities will honour Brazil’s democratic processes, adhering to the rule of law and the constitution.

Rousseff, who was Brazil’s first female president, denied that she had committed any crime, and accusing her opponents of mounting a “coup”.(NAN)
