Government of Mexico attends inauguration of new President of Brazil

Mexico City, Mexico — A delegation from the Government of Mexico attended the inauguration of the new president of the Federative Republic of Brazil, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.

The wife of the President of the United Mexican States, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, Beatriz Gutiérrez Mueller, the ambassador of Mexico in Brazil, Laura Esquivel Valdés and the executive director of the Mexican Agency for International Development Cooperation (Amexcid), Laura Elena Carrillo Cubillas, attended the presidential inauguration ceremony that took place in the National Congress of Brazil.

President Lula da Silva received congratulations sent by her Mexican counterpart, with whom she held a personal meeting on March 2 at the National Palace in Mexico City.

On October 30, the President of Mexico congratulated the Brazilian people and stated that “there will be equality and humanism” regarding the democratic victory of the then President-elect Lula da Silva.

Both countries have maintained formal diplomatic relations for 188 years in which deep ties of friendship and cooperation have been forged. In this new stage, where two progressive visions coincide for the first time, Mexico and Brazil consolidate themselves as important strategic allies in the region.

The coincidences and the fraternal bond between the peoples and governments of Mexico and Brazil guarantee a solid relationship with a view to the unity of the American continent.
