Brazil enacts agreement with Kuwait

Ricardo Lewandowski, president of Brazil’s Supreme Federal Court, has enacted a cultural exchange treaty signed in 2010 one day after convening with the Kuwaiti ambassador in Brasília.

São Paulo – The acting president of Brazil, minister Ricardo Lewandowski, has enacted a cultural cooperation agreement with Kuwait this Wednesday (24th) in Brasília. The action takes place one day after Lewandowski, the president of Brazil’s Supreme Federal Court (STF, in the Portuguese acronym) met with the Kuwaiti ambassador in Brazil, Ayadah Alsaidi.

According to the STF, the agreement enacted by Lewandowski this Wednesday was signed in 2010 with Kuwait and lays the legal groundwork for cooperation and cultural exchange in fields like literature, cinema, performing arts, visual arts, music, libraries and museums.

The agreement provides for joint projects between public and private organizations and facilitates the entry, stay and exit of those involved in these partnerships in the countries involved. A similar partnership signed in 2009 with Ukraine has also been enacted by Lewandowski this Wednesday.

Alsaidi has told ANBA this Wednesday that at his meeting with Lewandowski last Tuesday (23rd) at the STF headquarters, in Brasília, he extended an invitation for the minister and STF president to visit Kuwait. “We exchanged information and discussed the Constitution, legal mechanisms and the building of closer diplomatic ties between Brazil and Kuwait. I invited him to pay a visit to Kuwait in the future,” the ambassador said.

Rousseff and Temer absent

Lewandowski has taken office as acting president of Brazil due to the absence of president Dilma Rousseff, who has travelled to New York for the UN General Assembly, and of vice president Michel Temer, currently in Uruguay. The two were scheduled to return to Brazil on Wednesday evening.

The third in the line of succession, the president of the Chamber of Deputies, Henrique Eduardo Alves (affiliated with PMDB party in the state of Rio Grande do Norte), and the fourt, the president of the Senate, Renan Calheiros (PMDB-Alagoas) have declared themselves unable to take office due to electoral appointments. Lewandowski, the fifth in line of succession, has assumed the post.
