Brazil has signed an agreement with the United States on the development of the Moon in the framework of the Artemis program

WASHINGTON-Brazil has become the first country in South America to sign a cooperation agreement with the United States under the Artemis lunar program (“Artemis”) and about the norms of behavior in space. This was reported by the press service of the State Department.

“Brazil is the first country in South America to join the agreements,” the text says.

The Artemis Agreements, named after the American lunar program, is a series of bilateral agreements between the United States and partner countries. Among the principles contained in them are, in particular, provisions on the extraction of resources on the Moon and the idea of creating so-called security zones that should prevent “malicious interference.”

In a statement, the US Foreign Ministry noted that US Secretary of State Antony Blinken on Tuesday made a video message in which he congratulated Brazil on joining the program. In particular, he said that “the United States is looking forward to expanding cooperation in space with international and commercial partners.”
