The press conference of H.E. Edson Marinho Duarte Monteiro, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Brazil in Armenia, was held at Media Center on September 8. The press conference was on the occasion of Independence Day of Brazil that is celebrated on September 7.
This year marks the 195th anniversary of Brazilian Independence.
The Ambassador says Brazil is trying to make as many initiatives as possible on the occasion of Independence Day.
“The most important part of the holiday is the military parade in the capital with the participation of ambassadors and officials. We also celebrate Independence Day in Yerevan. There are not many Brazilians in Armenia, there are around 10 Brazilians who are invited together with our colleagues, cultural figures, diplomatic corps and government representatives,” Edson Marinho Duarte Monteiro said.
