The defense agreement, announced last week, it is the first of the type to be firm among the two countries in more than 30 years.
To leave of that agreement, the two countries can implement united projects of technology transfer, change of experiences and personnel's training in the defense area.
The document vineyard being negotiated from the American president's government George W. Bush (2001-2009), but just recently was closed.
Last year, a military agreement that it foresaw the use of bases in Colombia for American forces provoked critics of the countries of the area, among them Brazil. At that time, the Brazilian government got to collect explanations of Washington and Bogota.
Differently of the pact with Colombia, the agreement with Brazil doesn't foresee the use of Brazilian bases for the United States nor any immunity type for the American forces in Brazilian soil.

To Brazil it continues valid the beginning: good American is American far away.
