On January 1, President Chan Santokhi and a group went to see President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva be inaugurated. President Lula da Silva’s inauguration was attended by heads of state from more than 40 nations. The head of state has also spoken with a number of other regional leaders. In the late hours of Sunday night, the delegation arrived home.
Suriname’s participation in the mission, according to Minister Ramdin of Foreign Affairs, International Business, and International Cooperation, is crucial. “Despite having a different president, we have developed a really positive relationship with Brazil over the past two years. However, the minister to the Suriname Communications Service said, “We want to keep doing it. Ramdin claims that it is not just about corporate interests but political purposes. The seventh-largest economy in the world is that of Brazil.
The minister says that it is important to consider the enormous potential for cooperation between Brazil, Guyana, and Suriname. There were discussions with a number of authorities during which Minister Ramdin met with his colleague Mauro Vieira.
During this time, President Santokhi also had brief conversations with colleagues from the Caribbean, Africa, Europe, and Latin America. It was possible to continue building relationships with the Arab country representatives who were also in attendance. According to Ramdin, it was crucial for the president to hear the installed president speak about his policies. This is due to the high expectations surrounding both Brazil’s foreign policy and climate change.
