Along with congratulations from South American heads of state such as Argentina’s Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner and Bolivia’s Evo Morales who are fighting the financial powers to develop their nations, President Rousseff received warm and substantive congratulations from the heads of state of three giants of the BRICS alliance: China, Russia and India.
Chinese President Xi Jinping conveyed his hopes that under the leadership of Rousseff “the Brazilian people will keep making new, greater achievements in building their country.” He recalled that discussions during his state visit to Brazil in July, where he also participated in the BRICS summit and a summit with Ibero-American and Caribbean leaders, he and President Rousseff “unanimously decided to deepen the mutually beneficial and friendly cooperation between China and Brazil in various fields, and to jointly promote development of the world order toward a more impartial and more rational direction. I attach great importance to developing China-Brazil relations, and am willing to make concerted efforts with you to strive for sustained and rapid development of the comprehensive strategic partnership between China and Brazil,” he wrote, Xinhua reported.
The Kremlin press service reported that in Vladimir Putin’s message of congratulations, “The Russian President also praised the attention given to strengthening the Russian-Brazilian strategic partnership, and affirmed his readiness to continue a constructive dialogue and active collaboration on developing greater bilateral cooperation in all areas, as well as cooperation in the forums of the United Nations, G20, BRICS and other multilateral structures.”
Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, too, said: “I look forward to continuing to work with Dilma to strengthen India-Brazil relations in the years to come.”
