US Defense Secretary Visits Brazil

BRASILIA – US Defense Secretary James Mattis met on Monday with Brazil’s foreign and defense ministers for talks on human rights issues and the role of both countries in international peacekeeping missions.

Mattis and Foreign Minister Aloysio Nunes discussed “a broad range of defense matters,” according a statement by the US Department of Defense.

There was no immediate report on Mattis’ discussions with his Brazilian counterpart, Gen. Joaquim Silva e Luna, but Pentagon sources said the officials were expected to follow up on points addressed by Brazilian President Michel Temer and Vice President Mike Pence when the US official visited Brazil in June.

On that occasion, Temer and Pence talked about the possible use by the United States of the Alcantara space center on Brazil’s northern Atlantic coast.

Mattis will travel on from Brazil to Argentina, Chile and Colombia as part of his first official tour in South America.
