Having met on 22-23 June, 2010, in Sofia, the Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the Federative Republic of Brazil and the Republic of Bulgaria agreed on the following Communiqué:
The Federative Republic of Brazil and the Republic of Bulgaria have long enjoyed a fruitful and friendly relationship.
The visit of H.E. Minister Celso Amorim to Sofia, to meet with his counterpart, H.E. Minister Nickolay Mladenov, and other high level authorities, being the highest level visit so far from Brazil to Bulgaria, represents a welcome development in our bilateral relations.
On this occasion, we have had the opportunity to further the understanding of our countries’ perspectives on a number of bilateral and multilateral issues, thus contributing to an improved relationship on all the instances, regional and global, where Brazil and Bulgaria have to contribute to reach decisions that affect the interests of the international community.
Both Ministers agreed that the partnership between Brazil and Bulgaria can play a positive role in advancing economic, social and cultural opportunities in South East Europe, as well as strengthening the inter-regional relationship between the Balkans and Latin America.
Having in mind this fruitful relationship, and the need to facilitate cultural and commercial exchanges, we also have agreed to accelerate the ongoing negotiations of bilateral Agreements on Economic Cooperation and on Education and Cultural Cooperation as well as on other subjects of interest to both parties.
