US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo praised the relationship between his country and Brazil and with President Jair Bolsonaro (non-party) in a publication on his Twitter profile.
“Our relationship with Brazil is growing,” Pompeo said, attaching a photo with Bolsonaro, Michelle Bolsonaro (wife of the President of Brazil) and Susan Pompeo (wife of the secretary) to the post.
“With Jay Bolsonaro’s government, we signed a New Tri-Trade Agreement, We designated Brazil as an important significant ally outside NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) and launched the Brazil-US Environmental Dialogue.
Apart from Bolsonaro in another post, Minister of Foreign Affairs Ernesto Arazzo was also recalled by Pompeo, who said that there is no “more freedom-loving” foreign minister around the world than Itarsi’s diplomat. .
Within 16 days, on January 20, when Democrat Joe Biden will take over as United States President and replace Republican Donald Trump, Pompeo will also step down as Secretary of State.
In place of Pompeo, Antony Blinken, the second-ranked diplomat in the State Department during the Barack Obama administration, will take over.
