The relationship between the Federative Republic of Brazil and the Islamic Republic of Pakistan are characterized as friendly and cooperative. Brazil maintains an embassy in Islamabad and Pakistan maintains an embassy in Brasília.

In 2008, Brazil approved the sale of 100 MAR-1 anti-radiation missiles to Pakistan despite India's pressure on Brazil.[1]

Brazil's Defense Minister Nelson Jobim called these missiles "very effective ways to monitor" areas flown by war planes, and said the deal with Pakistan was worth 85 million euros (167.6 million dollars). He dismissed protests by India. "Brazil negotiates with Pakistan, not with terrorists," Mr Jobim said. "To cancel this deal would be to attribute terrorist activities to the Pakistani Government."[2]

According to a 2013 BBC World Service Poll, only 5% of Brazilians view Pakistan's influence positively, with 63% expressing a negative view. Pakistani opinion on Brazil seems to be sharply divided, with 27% viewing Brazil positively and 26% viewing Brazil negatively.[3]
