MOSCOW, November 20, 17:55 /ITAR-TASS/. Brazilian Foreign Minister Luiz Alberto Figueiredo sees broad prospects for cooperation with Russia.
“Russia is a partner, which is committed to the cause of peace, progress and human rights,” Figueiredo said at the Russian Foreign Ministry’s Diplomatic Academy on Wednesday.
“Our international cooperation is based on the principles of the supremacy of international law and the U.N. Security Council central role,” the Brazilian minister said.
“It is not incidental that I elected Russia as the first country for my visit. Due to the commonness of our positions we are becoming important strategic partners. We’re grateful for Russia’s support in many fields, particularly in the U.N.,” he said.
The Brazilian minister named trade as one of the most important fields of bilateral cooperation. “In the past 10 years mutual trade turnover increased by more than 300 percent and reached at least 10 billion U.S. dollars,” Figueiredo said.
