This morning, the head of the Kremlin’s diplomacy met in Moscow with his Brazilian counterpart, Carlos Franca, and the Ministers of Defense, Walter Souza Braga, and of Russia, Sergey Shoigu.

In statements to the press, Lavrov stressed that Russia supports Brazil’s candidacy for the Security Council, as part of the expansion of that body’s membership through additional seats for developing countries from Latin America, Asia and Africa.

He noted that another important topic of the dialogue was that both nations agreed to coordinate their approaches to the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction in the context of arrangements for the Review Conference of the Member States of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT).

Moscow also informed Brasilia about the steps being taken in the exchange with the United States and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) on long-term legal guarantees of security.

For his part, Shoigu said that the South American nation is an important strategic partner of his country in Latin America, so the negotiations between the two defense portfolios will contribute to strengthening security and stability in that region.

In his opinion, Russian-Brazilian cooperation in the military and military-technical fields contributes to the dynamic development of their relations, which was confirmed by Franca, who added Brazil’s interest in getting access to advanced Russian technologies to strengthen its defense capabilities.

According to him, another priority of collaboration at the highest level is cybersecurity and methods to preserve information privacy, particularly in cyberspace, a topic to be discussed at Wednesday’s meeting between the presidents of the two countries.
