The plane carrying the President of the Republic, Jair Bolsonaro, and the delegation of eight ministers, the First Lady and her son 03 Eduardo Bolsonaro, took off on Sunday (19), at 9:08 am, towards New York (USA). ). Landing is scheduled for 4:30 PM Brasilia time. The purpose of the trip is the participation of the Brazilian Head of State in the 76th session of the General Assembly of the United Nations (UN), which should open the circle of discourses between leaders.
Bolsonaro left Alvorada Palace at 8:26 a.m. for Brasilia Air Force Base, where the flight took off. The president is accompanied by eight ministers: Carlos Franca (Foreign Affairs), Anderson Torres (Justice and Security), Paulo Guedes (Economy), Marcelo Quiroga (Health), Joaquim Leyte (Environment), Gilson Machado (Tourism), and Luiz Eduardo Ramos. (General Secretariat) and Augusto Heleno (Institutional Security).
Members of the delegation chosen by the President include the Special Secretary for Strategic Affairs, Flavio Rocha, the Brazilian Ambassador to the United States, Nestor Forster, the Representative of Brazil to the United Nations, Ronaldo Costa, and the President of Caixa, Pedro Guimarães. . Among the president’s family members traveling are First Lady, Michele Bolsonaro, and the President’s 03 son, Rep. Eduardo Bolsonaro.
The President will arrive in New York two days before the start of the United Nations General Assembly. This Monday (20), he takes part in a meeting with the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson. On the official schedule, Bolsonaro will have just over 30 minutes with the English representative, starting at 11:40 a.m. In the evening, the delegation will participate in a reception hosted by the Permanent Representative of Brazil to the United Nations.
On Tuesday (21st), Bolsonaro opened the round of discussions at the United Nations between heads of state, maintaining the tradition of initiating speeches by the representative of Brazil. This is followed by speeches by US President Joe Biden.
Even if he is not vaccinated, the Brazilian representative will have no problems complying with the official agenda at the United Nations, because the rules set by New York City, which require proof of vaccination to circulate in public buildings, do not apply to the United Nations. This is because the organization is considered an international territory, and therefore it is not subject to the rules of any country.
To diplomats and delegates, the President of the General Assembly, Abdullah Shahid, sent a statement in which he affirmed that “proof of vaccination is required for some activities inside, including at the United Nations headquarters.” Although the requirement does not extend to heads of state, Bolsonaro’s trading will be limited by New York City requirements.
In the face of the impasse, the return of the President of the Republic is scheduled for Tuesday (21), although the event will continue until September 27. Bolsonaro reiterated that he will not take the covid-19 vaccine until all of Brazil’s population is immunized.
expect to speak
The President of the Republic has already stated that he will use the space of the international vision to take a stand against the new timeframe. Bolsonaro is pushing to maintain the demarcation of Indigenous lands based on demarcation before the enactment of the federal constitution in 1988. Indigenous leaders and environmental advocates criticize the measure, claiming that the restriction could remove Indigenous peoples from the lands they currently inhabit.
“This new achievement not only shakes our agricultural business, but also endangers food security in Brazil and in the world,” he said during an event in Minas Gerais last Friday (17). Despite raising the contentious issue, Itamarte worked, along with Planalto, to prepare a more acceptable discourse, emphasizing the need to meet the goals set at the Climate Summit.
The goal is to improve Brazil’s image among international leaders. Therefore, the speech should not follow the same tone adopted in 2019. The first time at the United Nations, Bolsonaro criticized the left and brought in religious references. Moreover, he held foreign economic interests responsible for the deforestation of the Amazon.
