Today I was working on the speech that Dilma Rousseff gave before the General Assembly in New York last week and I was wondering: who was interpreting the speech from Portuguese and into which languages? I guess the Brazilian delegation brought its own team of interpreters? If it did, do you know if they interpreted Ms Rousseff's speech into the six UN official languages? Thank you very much in advance for appeasing my curiosity! Feel free to answer in PT/IT/FR/ES.

...CPLP is leading a concerted an organised effort to encourage the use of PT in international orgs., also in the UN. As far as I know, PT was added - for the occasion! - as a passive language and paid for by the lusophone countries, interpreted into one language, probably EN, and relayed into the other 5.
