Under new President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, Brazil will maintain its principled position of rejecting unilateral sanctions against Russia, said Alexei Labetsky, Ambassador to the Latin American country.
“It is clear that the collective West will try to connect this country to those sanctions regimes and to the sanctions policy that they are pursuing against us. It is clear that they will not stop there, but I have a high degree of conviction that Brazil is a country which pursues a sovereign foreign policy and determines its interests not according to what certain countries dictate, but determines its foreign policy based on national interests,” the Russian diplomat said.
According to him, Brazil will pursue an active foreign policy and will be focused on national interests of a global nature.
“Everyone rightly says today that Brazil is a superpower in the field of agro-industry, the largest regional power. It is one of the centers for solving world environmental problems. It is a country that has the ability to influence the development of global processes in the field of food security and industry,” Labetsky emphasized. .
