Brazil’s Ambassador to Peru, Jorge D’Escragnolle, said he hopes the good relations achieved during Luis Inacio Lula da Silva’s government, will be strengthened during the incoming administration of Brazil’s new president, Dilma Rousseff, reported Andina.
"I think the relations (of the new government) towards South America will continue, as well as the priority with Peru, which will continue with the same dynamism," he said.
D’Escragnolle described as "spectacular" the bilateral relationship reached during the governments of Alan García and Lula da Silva.
The diplomat said that this can be seen in the development and completion of the Inter-Oceanic South Highway, and in many Brazilian investments in Peru.
Peruvian Congress authorized President García to attend Rousseff’s inauguration ceremony to take place on 1 January 2011.
