BRASILIA (Reuters) – Brazil’s government rejects that recent events in Bolivia represent a coup and sees Evo Morales’ resignation as opening a path to preserve “democratic order”, the foreign ministry said in a statement on Tuesday.

The ministry added that Brazil is ready to collaborate with the interim leadership in Bolivia for a “peaceful, democratic and constitutional transition.”
