RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Jair Bolsonaro's government signed on Sunday, March 8th, an unprecedented military agreement with the United States, to try to expand Brazil's access to the American defense market, the largest in the world.
The bilateral agreement is considered the main practical outcome of Bolsonaro's trip to Florida this week and is a further enhancement of Brazil's designation as a privileged ally outside NATO (the western military alliance), a status granted to the country in March last year during the Brazilian president's visit to Washington.
Bolsonaro intends to capitalize politically on the treaty . . .
