    “His constant commitment to peace and Arab unity will always be appreciated by all those who work in the name of tolerance and understanding between the peoples,” declared the President.


    In the same message, Lula wishes Abdullah success. “I send His Majesty the most sincere wishes for an accomplishing and prosperous reign. I trust that relations between Brazil and Saudi Arabia will continue growing stronger under his inspired leadership.”


    The president of the Arab Brazilian Chamber of Commerce (CCAB), Antonio Sarkis Jr., also grieved the passing of king Fahd.


    “We are very sad with the loss of a great leader and statesman,” said Sarkis. “I would like to transmit our condolences to the people of Saudi Arabia,” he added in the name of the entity.
