The move is a setback for Bolsonaro’s government, which has made entry into the OECD a priority in order to increase confidence in the country and attract more investment.

OECD’s environmental policy committee canceled a planned discussion this week about upgrading Brazil’s status in the group, the Folha de Sao Paulo newspaper reported, citing a document.

The move is a potential setback for President Jair Bolsonaro’s government, which has made entry into the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development a priority in order to increase confidence in the country and attract more investment.

Consideration of Brazil was removed from the agenda at the Feb. 9 meeting after committee members received a letter from the U.S.-based group Human Rights Watch with questions about Bolsonaro’s environmental policies, Folha reported.

France is leading the opposition, arguing that Brazil’s participation could undermine the credibility of the group’s Environmental Committee, says Valor Economico.

The meeting will instead focus on Bulgaria, another country trying to join the Paris-based group.

Folha reported that Brazil’s foreign ministry has said it’s awaiting a response from the OECD’s environmental policy committee. The OECD declined to comment to the newspaper.

    You have never been to Brazil and your reports of Bags of Bumf, are entirely based you your trawling of the nether regions of the internet.

    Similarly you have never presented any proof of any of your allegations, not least of your supposed Military Service.

    “Front line” Bog buster more like.

    In your own words:

    “Your failure to meet your burden of proof” makes you an “inveterate liar”.

    A Fool and a Liar. This is what drinking urine and Vodka does for you.

    And what is the sum of 20 + 59 equal to (=), oh yes its 79, QED. Back of the net, goalpost fixed.

    This news must be music for Teresa Hill — who has strongly protested against the current president of Brazil.

    She still feels violated that Bolsonaro remains in power. (She is the self proclaimed expert about Brazilian bathroom facilities.)

    It's uplifting that in a difficult and challenging environment we all are having to confront — she unusual Canadian has gone into isolated seclusion into her mother's basement which should be applauded as no person has to endure her less-than-charming personality.

    In fact Teresa perhaps should be given an award for not intermixing with others and as long as her mother still goes shopping for frozen microwaveable food at the local supermarket and the Canadian government keeps providing financial welfare payments — Teresa will be able to pay her cable television provider continues her access of 300+ channels of marvelous soap-opera drama.

    As many know — Canadian residents are experiencing a frigid polar vortex with miserable low temperatures which is unlike the pleasant warm weather that we're enjoying here in Chile.

    (Despite the horrible frigid Winter weather in Canada — look who crawled from out of her mother's dank filthy basement!)

    Knowing your very SPECIAL Argentine character — I again would greatly recommend the knowledgable and quote filled TERESA HILL as a very suitable partner who has an exciting and dynamic entertaining lifestyle:

    Although she's an unemployed VIRGIN living in her mother's BASEMENT, you can't deny she'd make a marvelous significant partner that could educate you in Dog Latin quotations and she has an incredible appreciation of inflatable sex toys.

    (One hint: make sure to add spray cheap perfume heavy before decending down into her basement lair. You'll need it and it's guaranteed to drive Teresa crazy.)

    Although some people might be appalled with her advocating of drinking her own urine for supposedly heathy reasons — frankly everything about Teresa is bizarre.

    Let's hope she remains in her frigid Canadian basement until she dies from uremic kidney poisoning although the general consensus seems to think it will be due to kidney failure due to imbibing cheap vodka.

    Cheers from beautiful sunny warm Chile!
