Exposição de Motivos no. 081/71

To His Excellency the President of the Republic

I have the honor to address Your Excellency with regard to Exposição de Motivos no. DEOc/DCT/326/592 (81a), of 4 October 1971, from the Ministry of External Relations, dealing with the Draft Special Convention to be signed between the National Research Council (CNPq) and the Jülich Center for Nuclear Research (KFA), in Germany.

On this matter, this General Secretariat established that:

  • Brazil and the Federal Republic of Germany signed in June of 1969, a General Agreement on Scientific and Technical Cooperation.
  • Based on that instrument, a Special Convention between the National Nuclear Energy Commission and the Jülich Center for Nuclear Research was signed in the current year with the objective of promoting effective technical cooperation between the two agencies, in the specific fields of activities.
  • With the aim of enlarging the scope of the exchanges in a priority sector for the policy of development, the Ministry of External Relations carried out negotiations for the signature of a new Convention, this time between the Jülich Center for Nuclear Research and the National Research Council, encompassing other areas of common interest of the two countries.

After extensive study, this General Secretariat arrived at the following conclusions:

  • The Draft Special Convention between the National Research Council and the Jülich Center for Nuclear Research is consistent with the context of the “General Agreement on Cooperation on Scientific Research and Technological Development” signed by Brazil and Western Germany in June of 1969.
  • Said Convention, elaborated on the basis of the one previously signed between the National Nuclear Energy Commission and the Jülich Center for Nuclear Research will broaden the scope of scientific collaboration between the signatory countries.
  • It is convenient to maintain compatibility between the two instruments of collaboration in the aspects related to the area of nuclear Energy.
  • In this respect, the Guidelines for the National Nuclear Energy Policy provide that the negotiations be conducted in close liaison with the Ministry of Mines and Energy.
  • The conclusion of the Convention according to the proposal of the Ministry of External Relations responds to the interests of National Security.

   In submitting this matter to Your Excellency’s high consideration, this General Secretariat respectfully suggests that the Ministry of External Relations should be authorized to proceed with the negotiations in accordance with the above described conditions

     I avail myself of this opportunity to renew to Your Excellency the assurances of highest respect.

(Signed) Brig. Gen. João Baptista de Oliveira Figueiredo

Secretary-General of the National Security Council.
