Brazilian defense minister in Turkey for talks

Turkey's defense minister on Wednesday met with his Brazilian counterpart in the Turkish capital Ankara and said Turkey and Brazil were "shining stars" in the world.

At his meeting with Brazilian Defense Minister Nelson Jobim, Turkish minister Vecdi Gonul described relations between the two countries as perfect, and said that Brazil and Turkey had key positions at international issues as two members of the UN Security Council.

Recalling that more than 100,000 Turkish people had moved to Brazil in early 1900s, Gonul said it helped build a "different" bridge between the two nations.

Jobim, on his part, said that the world was going through an important era and added that Turkey and Brazil could become two leading actors of this era.

"We know Turkey's importance in its region and in the world," he said.

Jobim said Brazilian government was willing to improve cooperation with Turkey in all areas.
