President-elect Luis Inacio Lula da Silva He was invited this Monday to participate in the United Nations Climate Change Summit (COP27) in Egypt in November. The proposal was made by the Egyptian authorities, the hosts of the event. The gesture was seen among diplomats as a clear message that the international community was no longer willing Jair Bolsonaro As the speaker, the official Brazilian delegation to the event was sent by the current president.
In a statement, Egypt’s President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi congratulated Lula on his victory and said he wanted to cooperate with the new Brazilian head of state. But he also revealed that he invited the president-elect to COP27.
“I believe that Brazil can play a positive and constructive role during the summit to encourage climate action at the international level,” wrote the Egyptian president and host of one of the major diplomatic events of the year.
If Lula accepts, he will create a significant embarrassment for Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro. Behind the scenes, however, many remember that the current Brazilian president is not even going to the climate summit in Glasgow in 2021. At the time, he was one of the rare leaders who did not travel to Scotland.
Members of Lula’s team also revealed that the president-elect’s foreign agenda will be guided by the climate issue, including overcoming the credibility crisis the country is currently experiencing. The possibility of Brazil hosting an international conference on the matter has not been ruled out.
After weeks of extensive coordination, Western democracies rushed to congratulate Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva’s victory, with telegrams and messages on social media Sunday night. The goal was to create a garden sanatorium that would prevent a repeat of Jair Bolsonaro’s strategy. Donald Trump And questioning the fairness of the election.
By congratulating Lula, what Biden, Emmanuel Macron, Olaf Scholes and others have done is to show that they trust the electoral process and the results of the electronic voting machines. But there is a second message: henceforth, they recognize that Lula is the legitimate authority of Brazil.
International institutions such as the Organization of American States also manifested themselves.
Bolsonaro’s isolation process was completed this Monday when he made it clear that he wanted to establish broader partnerships with Lula – Brazil’s biggest allies outside the West – China and Russia.
Thus, within 24 hours, a kind of health curve was established, while Lula’s advisers indicated that the search for a president-elect by governments and international organizations had exploded.
A case in point is the UN climate conference in Egypt. UOL found that foreign delegations were sending additional negotiators, tasked with finding a Brazilian transition team to negotiate new understandings.
According to diplomats, Lula’s line to talk with Brazil fills an already wide agenda.
Among Europeans, there was still hope that Bolsonaro would allow a transition team, or even Lula, to the November G-20 summit in Indonesia. But within Idamaratti, possibility is seen as “impossible”.
At the G-20, however, Brazilian diplomats have already acknowledged that it would be difficult to arrange any kind of meeting with the defeated president if Bolsonaro goes. Especially if you maintain a posture of not recognizing failure and begin a transition process.
