President Jair Bolzano attended lunch at the British Embassy in Brasilia this Wednesday afternoon. The main issue with Ambassador Peter Wilson in Brazil since January this year is the environment.
According to one of the current members, the UK government was very concerned about this issue and would try to reduce global emissions. “They really seem to care about the environmental issue, which is not as political as Macron thinks,” a member of the crowd commented, recalling diplomatic issues with French President Emmanuel Macron.
Despite the thorny issue, the Bolsanaro government is the target of criticism for environmental issues, and the conversation was “open” and President Jair Bolsanaro and the UK ambassador had a good conversation, “spoke openly”, said one person who attended the meeting.
The United Kingdom will host COP26, the 26th United Nations Conference on Climate Change, postponed to November this year due to the corona virus outbreak.
More than 30,000 delegates from around the world were expected to attend the session, to be held in Glasgow, the capital of Scotland, at the end of last year. Promises to reduce greenhouse gas emissions will be discussed at the meeting.
