BRASILIA- Spanish Crown Prince Felipe, in Brazil for a five-day official visit, hailed the close ties between his country and the Latin American nation.

Felipe made the comments during a luncheon hosted by Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva for him and Princess Letizia in the Itamaraty Palace.

Lula, for his part, said that "Spain and Brazil together seek democratic and lasting solutions to the challenges of a world marked by intolerance and by threats such as terrorism."

Felipe spoke of the objectives that Brazil and Spain share abroad, the importance that the Latin American nation has not only for Madrid but also internationally and of Brazil's crucial contribution to the Ibero-American community of nations.

The prince emphasized that he wanted his visit to "deepen mutual knowledge," strengthen bilateral understanding and boost cooperation in new areas.
