Kofi Annan Calls Brazil’s Lula for Support

The Secretary-General of the United Nations (UN), Kofi Annan, asked Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva to back his initiatives to reform the structure of the institution. The request was made yesterday, March 30, during a 15-minute telephone call.

Annan also stressed the importance of the Brazilian President’s presence at the special session of the UN General Assembly, September 14-16, to discuss the reform proposals.


This information was furnished by the Minister of Foreign Relations, Celso Amorim, who accompanied the conversation.


According to Amorim, Lula thanked the Secretary-General for his call and commended the fact that the report submitted to the General Assembly on reform recognized Brazil as a developing country that provides assistance to poorer countries.


Lula also made favorable references to the institution’s acknowledgment that the campaign embraced by the Brazilian government to combat hunger represents a significant contribution to meeting the Goals of the Millenium.


Lula confirmed his personal involvement in UN reform and reiterated his dedication to the effort to combat global hunger and extreme poverty. He also reinforced his intention, together with France, Chile, Spain, and Germany, to seek financial mechanisms to further this cause.
