Brasí­lia Declaration Urges Nuclear-Free Zone for Middle East

Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva participated yesterday in the third and last plenary meeting of heads of State or government of South American and Arab countries. At the end of the Summit, representatives of the 34 participating nations approved and signed the event’s final document, the BrasÀ­lia Declaration.

President Lula classified the Summit of South American-Arab Countries as a “foundation” capable of sustaining a “monument of international relations.”


For the President, the fact that South Americans and Arabs got to know each other, which will allow them to join efforts, was the meeting’s best result.


The Brasí­lia Declaration, document containing the Summit’s conclusion, emphasizes the importance of combating terrorism and suggests active and effective international cooperation of the United Nations and regional pertinent organizations.


The document claims the United Nations to coordinate an international conference with the objective of defining the crime of terrorism. The Declaration condemns foreign occupation and recognizes the rights of countries and people to resist, according to the principles of International Law.


According to the document, Middle East regional security and stability require complete elimination of region’s nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction.


The Declaration of Brasí­lia establishes that the next Summit of South American-Arab Countries will be in Morocco, on the second quarter of 2008.


The next meeting of Ministers of Foreign Relations of South American and Arab Countries will be in Buenos Aires, in 2007. The Brasí­lia Declaration also anticipates a meeting of High Officials of the Ministries of Foreign Relations, next November, at the Arab League headquarters in Cairo.
