Macron urged the President of Brazil not to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement

After negotiations with the President of France Jair Bolsonaro confirmed his intention to remain in the framework of this agreement.

The President of France Emmanuel Macron held on Friday on the sidelines of the Group of Twenty summit talks with President of Brazil Jair Bolsonaro on the importance of implementation of the provisions of the Paris climate agreement. On the content of the negotiations, the representative of the Elysee Palace told the Agency France Press.

“The two presidents had a very frank exchange of views. Emmanuel Macron urged the need for Brazil not to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement,” the representative of the administration of the French President informed. At the same time, he said that Bolsonaro, who previously did not exclude the possibility of denouncing the agreement, at the talks in Osaka with Macron “confirmed his intention to remain within the framework of this agreement.”

June 26, Macron said that France will not accept the communiqué of the G20 in the absence of the mention of the Paris climate agreement. “I adhere to the red line, which I consider unacceptable to cross. I believe that if [the final document] does not talk about the Paris agreement, that is, if 20 countries in order to achieve General agreement, decide to abandon the achievement of ambitious goals to protect the climate, then France will not participate in this,” Macron warned.

As the representative of the Elysee Palace told the Agency on Friday, a working visit of French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian to Brazil is planned in July.
