Principality of Monaco
Diplomatic relations were established by Brazil and Monaco in 2010. The Brazilian Embassy in Paris (France) is responsible for cumulatively representing Brazil before the Monegasque Government.
There are opportunities for bilateral cooperation in the public, economic, cultural, humanitarian, environmental, and judicial areas. The current dialogue on technical cooperation and environmental issues is an important component of bilateral relations.
Monaco plays an important international role in the discussion on environmental themes. Prince Albert II is devoted to themes related to the marine environment and the oceans, and he was the first Chief of State or Government to confirm his attendance at the Rio+20 Conference.
Since 1993, Monaco is a full member of the United Nations. Brazil received Monegasque support to a number of Brazilian candidacies to international organizations, such as the International Court of Justice, the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women, and for the position of Director-General at the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).
