Washington_ The president-elect of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, entrusted his son with the task of subordinating the foreign policy of the South American nation to the interests of the United States (US), especially on issues related to Cuba and Venezuela, Cubadebate publishes.

Eduardo Bolsonaro, senator for the wealthy state of Sao Paulo, traveled earlier this week to Washington as his father's envoy to the State Department, the Treasury Department and the National Security Council of the White House, the newspaper O Globo reported.

During his meetings with second and third line officials, Bolsonaro Jr. was especially interested in signing an agreement with the US to increase the financial persecution against Havana and Caracas.

There are investigative instruments within the so-called Palermo Convention against organized crime that Brazil could use against both countries, the senator said, according to O Globo.

The judicial actions in politics was the main strategy of the Brazilian right to get rid of its rivals, as was the case of the leader of the Workers' Party (PT), Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, who was a favorite in all the polls for the past presidential elections, but could not be presented due to the siege of the judicial system.

According to the statements of Bolsonaro, the plan of the new government will be the internationalization of the techniques used to dismiss the elected president, Dilma Rousseff, and then take Lula out of the game through legal tricks.

Brazil is studying partnerships with the US government for that purpose, Bolsonaro Jr said.

The actions against the island and Venezuela will be coordinated by the Ministry of Justice, under Sérgio Moro, the controversial judge who turned the corruption investigations of the Lava Jato case into a witch hunt against the leaders of the PT, he said.

The envoy of the elected president of Brazil was received in Washington by the Secretary General of the Organization of American States (OAS), Luis Almagro.

Almagro is the spearhead of Washington against the progressive governments in Latin America and since its leadership in the OAS the attacks against governments that do not respond to US interests have intensified.

Bolsanaro Jr. also met with Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Western Hemisphere of the State Department, Kim Breier and officials of the National Defense Council.

The trip to the United States takes place on the eve of the arrival in Rio de Janeiro of the controversial National Security Adviser of the United States, John Bolton, who will meet with Jair Bolsonaro next Thursday.

Trump's current National Security Advisor was sub secretary of State and then Ambassador to the United Nations Organization of the George W. Bush government. In both positions he stood out for his ultraconservative positions and aggressiveness against sovereign countries.

Both the president-elect of Brazil and his son share with Bolton some of his most extreme ideas.

Bolsonaro Jr. defended the Brazilian military dictatorship during the campaign and his son threatened to outlaw some political parties in Brazil.

Although the new Brazilian far right government has not taken office, the threats and provocations of the president-elect have already led to the departure of Cuban doctors from the Más Médicos program, which will immediately leave about 30 million people without health coverage.

According to O Globo, Bolsonaro Jr. received a congratulation from the US authorities for demolishing the program, which involved more than 20,000 doctors from the Greater Antilles and thanks to which more than 100 million medical consultations were carried out.
