Lula to Meet Medvedev

Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva will discuss energy, aerospace, agriculture and arms projects with President Dmitry Medvedev in Moscow on Friday, the Kremlin said.

The two leaders plan to sign a strategic partnership plan during the visit, Lula’s fourth to Russia, it said.

Russia and Brazil are working to increase trade, which expanded fourfold between 2004 and 2008 to $6.8 billion, before shrinking 32 percent last year to $4.6 billion, the Kremlin said Thursday.
