ALL ALONG THE AXIS:

U.S., Brazil to sign defense cooperation accord (Phil Stewart and Raymond Colitt, Apr 7, 2010, Reuters)

The United States and Brazil are preparing to sign a new agreement to bolster defense cooperation, the first accord of its kind between the hemisphere's two top economies in more than 30 years, officials said on Wednesday.

The agreement, which could be signed as early as on Monday, is meant to demonstrate strengthening ties between the two militaries, despite diplomatic tensions over Brazil's refusal to back new sanctions against Iran over its nuclear program.


Thanks, W.
