Mr. President,

I received on this day in Dakar the message dated of to-day which Your Excellency sent me. I am very much grateful for the courtesy of the information and hasten to reply in order to express my high satisfaction for the achievement of this sister Republic in an important stage in the nuclear fuel cycle.      

I am aware of the exclusively peaceful intentions of the Argentine effort, which is the same that inspires Brazil. Our countries have already developed excellent cooperation on nuclear matters, and I am convinced that they will continue to work in this manner for mutual benefit and that of the economic and social development of the entire Latin American community.

In conveying to Your Excellency my most sincere wishes for your personal happiness, I avail myself of this opportunity to reiterate the assurances of my highest consideration.

João Batista Figueiredo

Senhor Presidente,

Recebi hoje em Dacar a mensagem desta mesma data a mim enviada por Vossa Excelência. Muito agradeço pela gentileza da informação e apresso-me a responder-lhe para manifestar minha viva satisfação pelo êxito logrado por essa República irmã no domínio de importante etapa do ciclo do combustível nuclear.

Sei da intenção exclusivamente pacífica desse esforço argentino, que é a mesma que inspira o Brasil. Nossos países já têm desenvolvido excelente cooperação em matéria nuclear, e estou certo de que assim continuarão a trabalhar em mútuo benefício e em proveito do desenvolvimento econômico e social de toda a comunidade latino-americana.

Ao apresentar a Vossa Excelência meus sinceros votos por sua felicidade pessoal, aproveito a oportunidade para renovar os protestos da mais alta consideração com que subscrevo

João Batista Figueiredo
