The attack on Brazil’s federal government was condemned by India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday, who called for “democratic traditions” to be respected.
“I am deeply concerned about reports of rioting and vandalism against State institutions in Brasilia,” Modi tweeted Monday. “Everyone must respect democratic traditions. We offer the Brazilian authorities our full support.”
Modi joins a chorus of world leaders in condemning the violence in the capital of Brazil.
Earlier, US Vice President Joe Biden stated that “the will of the Brazilian people must not be undermined.”
