Brazil launches international TV network

Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva Monday launched TV Brasil, a new Portuguese-language network based in Mozambique’s capital Maputo and tasked with “saying good things” about Brazil. “We want a network that talks about politics in quality terms, leaving aside prejudices because this will be a public network showing how Brazilians are beyond our borders,” he said in a ceremony in Brasilia. From Maputo, the new channel will be broadcast to more than 40 countries, mostly in Africa and Latin America. Mozambique President Armando Emilio Guebuza sent a pre-recorded message for the launch hailing the channel’s mission to “enrich communication between Brazil and Africa,” especially Portuguese-speaking African nations
