MAS SÓ AGORA, AMORIM?
Este modesto ex-blog já havia chamado atenção para isso no dia seguinte ao discurso.
Brasil reclama de gafe de Blair, diz jornal
da BBC Brasil

O ministro das Relações Exteriores, Celso Amorim, reclamou com o embaixador britânico no Brasil sobre a não inclusão do país no discurso que o primeiro-ministro britânico fez em Washington defendendo a reforma da ONU, na semana passada. Sob o título "Gafe de Blair na ONU afunda relações com o Brasil", o jornal britânico "The Guardian" afirma em sua edição desta quinta-feira que, apesar de estar cortejando o presidente Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva para tentar acabar com o impasse nas negociações multilaterais de comércio, Blair teria citado nominalmente o Japão e a Índia como merecedores de um assento permanente no Conselho de Segurança da ONU. E deixado o Brasil de lado.

Título: 1 - Blair's UN gaffe sinks relations with Brazil to new low

Relations between Britain and Brazil have struck a new low after a careless slip by the prime minister, Tony Blair, during a major foreign policy speech in Washington last week.
The timing of the diplomatic spat is unfortunate for Mr Blair, who has been courting Brazil's president, Lula da Silva, in an effort to break the deadlock in international trade talks.

The Brazilian foreign ministry confirmed to the Guardian yesterday that its foreign minister, Celso Amorim, called the British ambassador in Rio, Peter Collecott, into his office on Tuesday to seek an explanation for Mr Blair's apparent gaffe.

The row began after Mr Blair spoke in Washington about the need to reform the United Nations by expanding permanent membership of the security council - which represents the victorious allies after the second world war - from five to include leading industrial powers and representatives from the developing world.
The British government has long championed the membership of Brazil, even though Argentina has a strong claim as a representative from Latin America.

Mr Blair reiterated Britain's support for Brazil's candidature when Mr Da Silva visited Downing Street earlier this year.

But when Mr Blair made his speech, he said: "A security council which has France as a permanent member but not Germany, Britain but not Japan, China but not India, to say nothing of the absence of proper representation from Latin America or Africa, cannot be legitimate in the modern world."

The Brazilians immediately picked up on the sudden absence of their country.

Mr Blair scribbled down the speech, the third in a series of wide-ranging foreign policy speeches, on the flight from London to Washington. According to a British source, he did not seek to change British policy with regard to Brazil but was simply setting out his overall argument about a need for UN reform.

A Foreign Office spokesman said yesterday: "We remain supportive of Brazil's candidature, along with Germany, Japan and India, for permanent seats on an enlarged security council. The speech was not intended to set out our policy in detail but was an attempt to inject momentum into the debate. We remain solidly supportive of Brazil's bid for a permanent seat."

Mr Blair, along with the American president, George Bush, and the German chancellor, Angela Merkel, has been trying to secure the support of five leading developing countries, including Brazil, for a special trade conference to be held around the time of next month's G8 summit in St Petersburg.
