President Dilma Rousseff made a statement saying that security would be enhanced for the 2016 Olympics. According to the statement, the police who will work at the event are properly trained and equipped against possible terrorist attacks. The group has snipers, bombs and a group of thousands of agents from the federal and state police, in addition to the military. The same security measures were taken for the latest World Cup.
Rousseff said the attacks suffered in Paris make it urgent that the international community undertake a joint action to combat “relentless” terrorism. The Foreign Ministry issued a statement saying that all BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) leaders will come together to “defend and strengthen” cooperation between the countries fighting against terrorism.
