Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff is scheduled to meet with her US peer Barack Obama next week in the framework of the annual opening of the UN General Assembly and at the end of the month will be hosting British PM David Cameron in Brasilia, according to Sao Paulo media reports.
Rousseff and Obama will most probably advance on an “inconclusive” bilateral agenda next Tuesday in New York, said Folha de Sao Paulo, quoting Brazilian diplomatic sources who added the meeting is on request from the US State Department.
Brazil’s Executive has yet to confirm President Rousseff’s agenda next week in New York.
The presidents have already held two summits: the first March 2011 in Brasilia and the second last April in Washington, which according to diplomatic sources helped to overcome the distancing between Washington and Brazil when former president Lula da Silva got involved with Iran and established closer links with Teheran including receiving Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Brasilia.
President Rousseff is also scheduled to receive next Thursday Mexican elected president Enrique Peña Nieto at the Planalto Palce. The number one and two Latinamerican economies have good political relations but also significant trade differences.
Following the round of meetings in New York and her speech before the UN General Assembly, President Rousseff is scheduled to receive in Brasilia PM David Cameron next 27 September and a day later the recently elected Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi.
