Brazil will abide by UN sactions against Iran

August 11th, 2010

Brazil announced that despite its opposition to imposing sanctions on Iran, it has signed the UN resolution to impose sanctions on Iran and will adhere to its articles.

AFP reports that Celso Amorim, Brazil’s foreign minister said that the Brazilian president signed the UN resolution to impose sanctions on Iran because it has a tradition of “carrying out U.N. Security Council resolutions, including those we don’t agree with.”

Brazil and Turkey were the only two countries that voted against the fourth UN resolution in June of this year to impose sanctions on Iran. In May, the two countries brokered a deal with Iran in which Iran agreed to swap its low-enriched uranium with higher-enriched nuclear fuel in Turkish territory.

The US and its allies claimed the agreement was not enough and just a ploy by Iran to buy more time.

Washington suspects Iran of trying to build nuclear weapons but Iran has repeatedly denied this charge and maintains that its nuclear activities are all peaceful.

Skype vs Sky name dispute revealed

August 11th, 2010

Documents filed by internet phone company Skype for its flotation have revealed a long-running dispute with BSkyB over the legal rights to the ‘Sky’ part of its name.

Skype has fought off legal challenges against its name in Switzerland, Turkey and Brazil since 2005, though the EU upheld Sky’s complaint, which Skype intends to appeal against. Sky claims that the brand names will confuse the public.

The five-year legal battle came to light when Skype, which has 560m registered users worldwide, filed documents for a Wall Street flotation in a bid to raise up to $100m (£63m), according to a news report in The Guardian.

Skype has given no comment. But the company warned in its IPO filing: ‘If BSkyB or other third parties were to pursue litigation to prevent our use of the Skype name or logo, defending against that litigation could be costly and time-consuming even if we were ultimately to prevail.’

Lula da Silva underlines as his main legacy relation with the Brazilian people

August 10th, 2010

The Brazilian leader is disappointed with President Obama and his Latam policies

With less than five months in office and a public opinion support of 80%, President Lula da Silva considers his most important legacy the relation established between the presidency and the Brazilian people.

“The most important is the relation I established with society… with the people. All public policies which we implemented are the result of the participation of thousands of people from the towns, cities and states”, said Lula da Silva, 64, in an interview with the magazine IstoE.

“Government Palace is not only to receive princes”, said the former metal unions’ leader who was elected president in 2002 and repeated again four years later.

Regarding Brazil’s prospects, Lula da Silva said that “if we continue at this rate for six, seven years, we’ll be the fourth world economy”.

Asked about what he is planning for when he steps down next January, Lula da Silva said he is not interested in an international organization. (more…)

Lula Highlights Importance of MERCOSUR Summit

August 9th, 2010

Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva highlighted on Monday the outcome of last week’s 39th Summit of the Southern Common Market in Argentina, which he said was the best in eight years.

He noted that the meeting eliminated a double trade tariff paid by all of the bloc’s member countries, which was hurting the region’s trade because of a “distortion,” he said.

The Brazilian president emphasized that the end of the tariff, known as the TEC, and the approval of a MERCOSUR customs code is creating space to consolidate “customs unity.”

He added that the MERCOSUR member countries had also approved the funding of nine projects worth $795 million to support regional development, and which will especially benefit the bloc’s smallest countries, Paraguay and Uruguay.

President Hugo Chavez said Friday that his foreign minister will attend the inauguration of Colombia’s new president, and he expressed optimism that Brazil‘s president may help ease tensions between Venezuela and Colombia.

The visit by Foreign Minister Nicolas Maduro could be a first step toward restoring dialogue and mending relations between Venezuela and U.S.-allied Colombia.

Chavez cut diplomatic ties with Colombia on July 22 after the government of outgoing President Alvaro Uribe released evidence that it says shows Venezuela gives haven to Colombian rebels.

Maduro will depart for Bogota on Saturday morning to attend the inauguration of Colombian President-elect Juan Manuel Santos, Chavez said, according to the state-run Venezuelan News Agency. (more…)
