Ahmadinejad welcomes Lula da Silva
Sun, 16 May 2010 08:54:20 GMT
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has officially welcomed his Brazilian counterpart Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva in the capital of Tehran ahead of the G15 summit.

President Lula arrived in Tehran, accompanied by a 300-member delegation -- including five Brazilian cabinet ministers -- to attend the Group of 15 summit on Monday.

The Brazilian president is expected to meet with the Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei during his visit.

According to IRNA, Brazilian and Iranian officials signed eleven memorandums of understanding on Sunday to promote bilateral cooperation in the fields of economy, agriculture, and industry.

Brazil, a non-permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, has been making efforts to break the deadlock over Iran's nuclear program and help reach an agreement on a fuel swap deal.

The G15 is made up of countries from Asia, Africa, and Latin America with a common goal of economic growth.

Earlier on Saturday, foreign ministers from the group of 15 met to discuss measures to tackle the global economic crisis. 


Lula being presented as a mediator by the world..... too chum to MY taste. What about to yours????

(CNN) -- Brazil's president began talks Sunday with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Tehran, state media reported, with international leaders saying they hoped the meeting could lead to a breakthrough in the showdown over Iran's nuclear program.
The official Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) made no mention of the nuclear issue in reporting that President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva was sitting down with Ahmadinejad.
But France's President Nicolas Sarkozy and President Dmitry Medvedev of Russia both said earlier they backed Lula's efforts to resolve the long-running, high-stakes stalemate.
"I am very much counting on the mission of the Brazilian president to be successful," Medvedev said Friday.
"This could be the last chance before the U.N. Security Council makes the already known decisions," Medvedev said, referring to the U.N. decision on imposing sanctions against Iran.
Sarkozy said earlier that he had spoken with Lula by phone to assure him of Paris's support for his efforts to resolve the impasse.
The United States and many other countries believe that Iran intends to develop nuclear weapons. Iran says its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes.
Brazil's president is in Iran ahead of the Group of 15 developing nations meeting in Tehran. The group actually has 17 members -- Algeria, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Iran, Jamaica, Kenya, Malaysia, Mexico, Nigeria, Senegal, Sri Lanka, Venezuela and Zimbabwe.
Lula also plans to meet Iranian Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei on his trip, IRNA reported.


Brazil President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva arrived in Tehran Sunday, where he is to meet Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Tehran. Brazil is trying to convince Iran to continue talks with the West on regulating its nuclear program. At a meeting with Iranian officials Sunday, da Silva said that Brazil believes that “Iran has a right to defend itself and to continues its progress and development,” but emphasized that he believed in continuing the negotiations.

Wait a moment!  Lula is a good friend of Peres. Please...
When Lula goes let Peres keep him company.
SOON, b'ezrat haEL

He added:

Peres was in Brazil just before Ahmed got there. This a not long ago.
At that time Peres quacked that "Israel will sell to Brazil certain drones"...  I wonder where would the drones get in reality if they are sent to Brazil....

DS replies:
Gee! Don't you think that is something that should be publicized, the dots connected?? 

Please make noise about it!

 SHmuel continues:
...Peres knew all along.  He is briefed all the time.

...I do not know who knew what and certainly most people that reads newspapers should have known, but I am sure Peres did not perform the sale. He just enjoyed it.

Brazil's growth as a commodity country is substantially dependent on China's continued growth. Since both these nations are a curse to Israel, in His perfect time, the LORD will bring them down in accordance with Genesis 12:3.  While their markets will undoubtedly be a short play eventually, the UK and the EU are the better current plays.  They are also receiving the recompense for their curing of Israel. However, when America craters, that will create the basis for a paradigm shift in the world economy / financial structure. From where I'm viewing, I'd say that is well within the foreseeable future.

( Is Lula only a mediator, or is he a friend of Ahmed..?)

Iran, Brazil aim for change in world order
Sun, 16 May 2010 14:09:18 GMT
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his Brazilian counterpart have vowed to boost relations in a bid to make reforms in the current "world structures."

President Ahmadinejad said strong relations between Tehran and Brasilia could set an example for all independent nations to change the current "unfair world order."

"The truth is some countries which dominate the world's media as well as economic and political centers do not want other countries to progress. But together we can overcome these unfair conditions and make changes," IRNA quoted him as saying.

Brazilian President Luiz Inacio da Silva arrived in Tehran earlier Sunday to attend a summit of the Group of 15 on Monday.

President Ahmadinejad and Lula said the two countries aim to increase bilateral trade to $10 billion.

The Iranian president further hailed Brazil for its support of the rights of Iranians.

Brazil, as a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council, has stepped up efforts to end a standoff between Iran and the West over the country's nuclear program.

Tehran has welcomed Brasilia's mediation efforts, saying the stance of independent countries such as Brazil and Turkey in finding a diplomatic solution to the nuclear issue.

Lula, for his part, said there were "many people" who are not happy about Iran-Brazil relations. He stressed that the two countries should be careful about those who are plotting to hamper bilateral relations.

Iran has stressed that as a signatory to the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) it has the right to enrich uranium and that it has accepted a proposed nuclear fuel swap offer as a confidence-building measure.

The West, however, has so far failed to accept Iran's demand for guarantees on the timely delivery of the fuel.

People on my mother-in-law’s bridge on line group found out she lives in Israel and several asked when Israel is going to bomb Iran’s nukes.

Question: When did Israel replace America as the superpower?

What will the community agitator do now?  Does this make WW-III inevitable?  Only time will tell.  Chamberlain must be smirking in his grave, Churchill turning over.

What a fiasco. That's the first word that comes to mind watching Mahmoud Ahmadinejad raise his arms yesterday with the leaders of Turkey and Brazil to celebrate a new atomic pact that instantly made irrelevant 16 months of President Obama's "diplomacy." The deal is a political coup for Tehran and possibly delivers the coup de grace to the West's half-hearted efforts to stop Iran from acquiring a nuclear bomb.

Full credit for this debacle goes to the Obama Administration and its hapless diplomatic strategy. Last October, nine months into its engagement with Tehran, the White House concocted a plan to transfer some of Iran's uranium stock abroad for enrichment. If the West couldn't stop Iran's program, the thinking was that maybe this scheme would delay it. The Iranians played coy, then refused to accept the offer.

But Mr. Obama doesn't take no for an answer from rogue regimes, and so he kept the offer on the table. As the U.S. finally seemed ready to go to the U.N. Security Council for more sanctions, the Iranians chose yesterday to accept the deal on their own limited terms while enlisting the Brazilians and Turks as enablers and political shields. "Diplomacy emerged victorious today," declared Brazil's President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, turning Mr. Obama's own most important foreign-policy principle against him.
