Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva is confident that a deal on liberalising world trade can still be reached despite last week’s collapse of the latest round of talks in Geneva.



The Brazilian President said he does not believe the Doha round of talks had failed, and that it would soon be concluded.



He is insisting that a deal on global trade is essential to the developing world and would help tackle terrorism and immigration problems.
