MOSCOW, May 12 /TASS/. Moscow is following the events in Brazil, which has decided to temporary impeach President Dilma Rousseff, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Thursday when asked a question by TASS.
"We are closely watching how the situation is unfolding. It is clear that the events in Brazil is an internal affair of this state. It is important that these processes take place in strict compliance with the country’s constitution and are in line with the national legislation norms. It is also fundamentally important that the outcome of these events, whatever it may be, does not split the society or lead to the growing political standoff in the country," the Russian diplomat said.
"Any destructive external interference is impossible," Zakharova said.
"We want to see a stable, democratic and of course dynamically developing Brazil, which could play a vital role in the international arena," the Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman said.
"Russia regards Brazil to be a vital foreign policy partner in Latin America and the whole world. We actively cooperate at the United Nations, BRICS and G-20," Zakharova said.
"Ties in trade, economic, humanitarian and cultural spheres have also been constructive. We can note with satisfaction that a broad spectrum of political forces in Brazil supports a course towards progressive development of cooperation with Russia," the Russian diplomat concluded.
