    Bolsonaro: Brazil owes nothing to the world regarding the environment

    Bolsonaro thanked Sebastian Piñera for agreeing to host in December 2019 the 25th U.N. Conference on Climate Change (COP25), originally planned in Brazil.

    Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro said his country “does not owe the world anything” when it comes to the environment. The far-right leader, who is critical of the Paris climate change accord, was speaking in Chile following Friday’s launch of the Forum for the Progress of South America (PROSUR), a conservative-minded group of South American leaders.
