South American countries to meet and determine common policy to defend Amazon forest

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro said on Wednesday that South American countries would meet to determine a common policy in defence of the Amazon rainforest, and took another swipe at France for an offer of $20 million in aid.

ClimateChange News reports that in an indication that Bolsonaro, a far-right conservative, is forging closer ties with neighbouring countries than European nations, he also accepted an offer from Chile of four aircraft to help fight the fires sweeping through the world’s largest rainforest.

Speaking to journalists on Wednesday after a meeting with Chilean president Sebastian Pinera in Brasilia, Bolsonaro said that a meeting with regional neighbours except Venezuela to discuss a common policy in defence of the Amazon will be held on 6 September in the Colombian city of Leticia.
