Brazilian President says to do everything to reach deal with Iran

Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva said he would try everything to reach a solution with Iran over its nuclear programme, according to a newspaper interview on Sunday.

"I want to exhaust every possibility up until the last minute of finding a pact with the President of Iran so that it can carry on enriching uranium but assuring us that it's only for peaceful purposes," he told El Pais.

Turkey and Brazil, both non-permanent members of the United Nations Security Council, have been trying to revive a stalled nuclear fuel deal.

Lula will travel to Iran at the end of next week to work with President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and other Iranian leaders towards a negotiated solution with Iran, Brazilian Foreign Minister Celso Amorim told Reuters on Friday.

Last week Iran voiced optimism over Brazilian mediation efforts, welcoming in principle ideas at reviving the nuclear fuel deal with major powers.
