Brazil, besides being a continental country, is a maritime country, which regionality covers South America and the countries of the west coast of Africa. Given the objectives of the Brazilian Foreign Policy of maintaining the sovereignty and territorial integrity, contribution to regional stability and international integration, the political action of Brazil is guided by the expression of Diplomacy and Defense. The expression of diplomacy consists of diplomatic action as an instrument to promote cooperation and conflict resolution.
