The information was released by the Press Service of Brazil’s Ministry of Foreign Relations.

During the call, Préval expressed gratitude for the Brazilian contribution for establishing peace and consolidating democracy in his country, and mentioned his desire to visit Brazil before his inauguration, scheduled for March 29th.

The Brazilian Chancellor evaluated that the decision by Haitian authorities to declare the victory of René Préval was an essential step for the institutional normalization of that country.
