Brazil Praises American Elections

The Brazilian Minister of Foreign Relations, Celso Amorim, considered important the American electoral process that re-elected President George W. Bush, because the United States is a country that serves as a model for many people and tends to be followed in many respects.

“It is very important for there to have been a democratic process and an unarguable victory [for Bush]. I think that democratic institutions are the big winners,” said the Minister.


Regarding relations between the two governments, Amorim pointed out that they have been satisfactory and very efficient, besides being cordial not only at the presidential level but in various aspects of cooperation.


The Minister emphasized the good relationship between Presidents Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva and George W. Bush, “demonstrated at the encounters the two presidents have already had.”


“I believe that, even in trade matters, the cooperation between our governments has been exemplary,” he affirmed.


The Minister said he hopes that the relationship between the two countries be one of solidarity and respect, following the example set by previous Administrations.


Lula Congratulates Bush


The Ministry of Foreign Relations released today the contents of the message sent by Lula to Bush, congratulating him on his re-election.


In the message, Lula says he is convinced that Brazil and the United States will continue to deepen their bonds of friendship and fruitful relations.


The two countries will also help advance their common aspirations on the global level in the battle against “poverty, insecurity, and other sources of imbalance and instability in the context of a more just and democratic world order.”
