January 03, 2011 (KATAKAMI / KREMLIN.RU) —Dmitry Medvedev sent a congratulatory message to Dilma Vana Rousseff Linhares upon assuming presidency of the Federative Republic of Brazil.

The message reads, in part:

“Our strategic partnership with Brazil is among the priorities in Russia’s foreign policy. It is founded on genuine affinity, mutual respect and trust between the two peoples. We are drawn together by similar long-term national interests and substantial accumulated experience in productive cooperation.

Our states cooperate closely on a broad range of international issues in order to promote democracy, strengthen stability and security, and engage in equitable international teamplay, including within the framework of the UN, G20, BRIC, and other international forums, as well as within mechanisms for dialogue between Russia and regional Latin American associations, such as Mercosur, the Rio Group, and OAS.

In recent years, important prerequisites have been created for expanding our trade and economic relations. We see increasing and diversifying turnover and implementing joint projects in high-tech areas such as space, energy, telecommunications and military technical cooperation to be a current priority. Putting greater focus on innovation would be particularly significant in fully unleashing our potential in economic cooperation.

It is important to note that our humanitarian contacts have grown significantly. This has become possible due in large part to allowing visa-free travel for short-term trips by our citizens and the re-establishment of direct airline routes.

A promising area of cooperation will be the exchange of experience in organising major international sporting events such as the Olympics and Paralympics in 2014 in Sochi and in 2016 in Rio de Janeiro, as well as the Football World Cup in Brazil in 2014 and in Russia in 2018.

I am looking forward to working with you constructively and productively. I expect that through our joint efforts, we will be able to ensure a high level of momentum in the multidimensional and mutually beneficial Russian-Brazilian relations, for the benefit of both nations.”

President Dmitry Medvedev also sent a message to Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva upon completion of his term as President of Brazil.

The message reads, in part:

“I would like to express my sincere appreciation for your enormous input into strengthening the friendship and constructive cooperation between our nations.

In the last eight years, Russian-Brazilian relations have reached a level of true strategic partnership and have become even more trusting and intense.

I warmly recall your visits to Russia and the cordial welcome I received in Brasilia and Rio de Janeiro. I am certain that your personal input largely influenced the fact that regular Russian-Brazilian contacts at the highest level have promoted the consolidation of multifaceted, mutually beneficial cooperation between our countries and broadened reciprocity on the international arena, including within the framework of the UN, BRIC, and G20.

I am confident that Russia and Brazil will continue actively implementing the enormous potential of bilateral cooperation for the benefit of our peoples and in the interest of international peace and stability.” (*)

As reported by the Voice of America, Dilma Rousseff took the oath of office Saturday during a ceremony in the capital of Brasilia, taking over from her highly popular political mentor, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, known to many as "Lula." Ms. Rousseff served as his chief of staff for five years and, in her first speech to Congress, she promised to continue many of the former president's economic and social welfare programs. Under Mr. da Silva, Brazil emerged as one of the world's major economies, along with Russia, India and China. It is estimated that 30 million people joined the middle class during his eight-year presidency.

This act is seen as symbolic of a general movement in South America to recognise the Palestinian state. It has however received sharp criticism from the United States lawmakers and Israel. Doves were released during the ceremony to represent peace. (Photo by Thaer Ganaim/PPO via Getty Images)
