The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Mauro Vieira, will visit Iran and Lebanon on September 13-16.

In Tehran, on October 13-14, Minister Mauro Vieira will be received by President Hassan Rouhani and will hold meetings with the Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, and the Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council, Rear Admiral Ali Shamkhani.

In the meetings, dedicated to advancing political dialogue and diversifying cooperation and bilateral exchanges, the main topics on the international agenda will be discussed, such as peace and security, disarmament and non-proliferation, and the situation in the Middle East.

Trade between Brazil and Iran, with a surplus for Brazil, had been achieving progressive increases until 2011/2012, exceeding US$ 2 billion, but was reduced by almost 50% as a result of international sanctions imposed on Iran. The prospect of lifting sanctions opens opportunities for expansion of exchange in sectors such as agribusiness and investment in the fields of hydroelectricity, mining and infrastructure.

Minister Mauro Vieira will explore with the Iranian partners the prospects of deepening bilateral dialogue on human rights and cooperation initiatives in such areas as agriculture, energy, science and technology, medicine and hospital equipment.
