The Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Mauro Vieira, will visit Lisbon on March 16 to 17, where he will hold a work meeting with the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Portugal, Augusto Santos Silva, to discuss issues of the bilateral, regional and multilateral agendas, and lead the Brazilian delegation to the XIV Extraordinary Meeting of the Council of Ministers of the The Community of Portuguese-speaking Countries (CPLP), when the findings of the recent mission of the CPLP to Guinea-Bissau will be presented. The Community is closely following the political developments in Bissau, which has faced challenges in consolidating institutional stability since the 2014 parliamentary and presidential elections. During the meeting, the ministers will also deepen the ongoing debate on the development of a new strategic vision for the CPLP, which celebrates its twentieth anniversary next July.
Brazil will host the XI Conference of Heads of State and Government of the Community in 2016, when it will assume the rotating presidency of the organization for the biennium 2016-2018.
