Brazilian Foreign Minister Antonio Patriota and his Spanish counterpart Trinidad Jimenez signed on Thursday a memorandum of understanding for triangular cooperation in third country, especially in Latin America and Africa.

In a press conference after signing the agreement here, Jimenez said that Spain and Brazil have already carried out successful joint operations in this regard.

"In the field of cooperation we already have a good experience of joint

work in countries with which we are closely linked, such as Haiti. We had an excellent experience and would like to carry it on," he said.

The agreement will aim at promoting "the development of joint actions for the benefit of third countries, as developed or less developed ones, with which both countries maintain cooperation relations for development through technical, humanitarian and emergency cooperation."

In the document, the two countries highlighted the growing importance and "the potential of triangular cooperation as a new tool" to support other nations.

A similar agreement was signed by Brazil and Spain in 2009, which served as a base for cooperation through technical and humanitarian actions in third countries.
