Togolese Republic

togo


The independence of Togo was recognized by Brazil in 1960, and diplomatic relations were established in 1962. The Embassy of Brazil in Lomé and the Embassy of Togo in Brazil were opened in 1978. Due to budgetary reasons, the Embassy of Brazil in Lomé was temporarily closed, but it was reopened in 2005. Political instability in Togo at the beginning of the 90's restrained the deepening of relations. The Embassy of Togo in Brazil was closed in 1999.

Cooperation is one of the axes of the bilateral relation, based on the Basic Agreement on Technical and Scientific Cooperation and the Cultural Agreement, both in force since 1973.
