Readout Of Biden-Bolsonaro Meeting Published


The White House releases the readout of talks between U.S. President Joe Biden and Brazil President Jair Bolsonaro who "met today to reaffirm the strategic importance of the relationship between the United States and Brazil—two of the world’s largest democracies. At a moment when the globe is facing a cascade of crises, from Russia’s war in Ukraine to global warming and pandemic recovery, the partnership between the United States and Brazil is vital to international efforts to address the climate crisis, and ensure peace. The Leaders pledged to continue their ongoing collaboration on trade and commercial matters, including through U.S. support for Brazil’s OECD candidacy. President Biden and President Bolsonaro also discussed how our countries must work together to facilitate sustainable development in the larger Amazon Basin to dramatically reduce deforestation, coordinate closely at the UN Security Council over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, and support democratic renewal."

  • Both leaders sounded positive about their discussions, with Bolsonaro calling them "sensational" and "way better than expected" as he expressed interest in deepening ties with the U.S. However, he also pointed to "ideological differences" between Brazil and the U.S. and complained about foreign pressure over the Amazon.
  • It was the first meeting between Biden and Bolsonaro, an outspoken Trump supporter, who had previously echoed unjustified allegations of fraud in the vote that saw Biden take office.
  • Their remarks can be found under this link.
