I last spoke with my then Brazilian counterpart Eduardo Dos Santos, Vice Foreign Minister, in July 2014. We discussed a number of issues including the UK Brazil annual strategic dialogue, the BRICS Summit, Science without Borders and the UK's and Brazil’s priorities ahead of the UN Human Rights Council.

The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my right hon. Friend, the Member for Runnymede and Weybridge (Mr Hammond), spoke to his counterpart, Foreign Minister Vieira in January 2015, shortly after the latter's appointment. They plan to meet later this month at the UK Brazil annual strategic dialogue where they will discuss a wide range of foreign policy issues.
