Brazilian president pays tribute to soldiers killed in Haiti quake

January 22nd, 2010

Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva Thursday paid tribute to 18 UN Brazilian peacekeepers who died last week in the Haiti earthquake.

The military participated in the “noblest humanitarian mission ever carried out by the Brazilian Armed Forces,” Lula said in a speech during the official ceremony in honor of the soldiers in Brazil’s capital city, Brasilia.

The funeral ceremony was also attended by Defense Minister Nelson Jobim and other high-ranking military and government officials.

The 18 soldiers were serving in the United Nations peacekeeping mission in Haiti (Minustah), which Brazil heads since 2004. Most of them had almost completed their six-month mission and were to return to Brazil only a day after the quake that killed them.

Speaking before the 18 coffins draped with Brazilian flags, Lula said that the Brazilian members of the Minustah brought not only security and medicine to Haiti, but also solidarity and, “above all things, respect” from the Brazilian people.

The 18 officers received post-mortem promotion and were granted the Peacemaker Medal.
