“I would like to register the profound admiration and respect of the Brazilian people for the legacy of His Majesty the King Fahd bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.


“His constant commitment to peace and Arab unity will always be appreciated by all those who work in the name of tolerance and understanding between the peoples,” declared the President.


In the same message, Lula wishes Abdullah success. “I send His Majesty the most sincere wishes for an accomplishing and prosperous reign. I trust that relations between Brazil and Saudi Arabia will continue growing stronger under his inspired leadership.”
