Lula: Brazil, Spain rift will be solved

March 20, 2008 at 8:04 PM   |   Comments

RIO DE JANEIRO, March 20 (UPI) -- Brazil's president says he is certain his country's dispute with Spain regarding the deportation of Brazilian citizens could be resolved.

Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva told reporters Brazil had close relations with Spain and its Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero, and the spat would soon be over, Estado de Sao Paulo reported Thursday.

Relations between the two countries soured after a group of Brazilian students trying to enter Spain were denied entry. Brazil, in turn, prevented 30 Spanish citizens from entering Brazil -- saying they didn't have the proper visa for their visits.
