Context

US President Obama, on an official trip to Latin America, said that Brazil’s growing democracy and flourishing economy were a model for the Middle Eastern countries. However, there wasn’t any direct endorsement of Brazil’s efforts to obtain permanent US Security Council seat, a move that clearly left Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff disappointed with the lack of support. Obama, whose trip is being somewhat overshadowed by the situation is Libya, is due to travel to El Salvador and Chile. In one of his speeches, Obama talked about Libya, saying that “a new generation” is demanding the right to decide its own future.
