STORYLINE:

Asking for a ceasefire in Ukraine, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro told the General Assembly’s General Debate that his country supports “all efforts to reduce the economic impacts of this crisis”, but it does “not believe that the best way is to adopt unilateral and selective sanctions, that are inconsistent with International Law.”

Speaking today (20 Sep) at the opening of the High-Level week, Bolsonaro said that “these measures have harmed the economic recovery and threatened human rights of vulnerable populations, including in European countries.”

For the Brazilian president, the conflict in Ukraine also “serves as a warning” that “a reform of the UN is essential if we are to find world peace.”

In the specific case of the Security Council, Bolsonaro continued, “after 25 years of debates, it is clear that we need to look for innovative solutions.”

The head of state also mentioned the crisis in Venezuela, saying Brazil has opened its borders to those seeking a chance to restart their lives.

According to Bolsonaro, since 2018, over six million Venezuelan have been forced to leave their country and many of them came to Brazil.

“Our response to this challenge was ‘Operation Welcome’, which has become an international benchmark. More than 350,000 Venezuelans have found in Brazilian territory, emergency assistance, protection, documentation and the possibility of a fresh start,” said the Brazilian president.

Bolsonaro said his country remains open to foreigners, including “to welcome the Catholic priests and nuns who have suffered cruel persecution by the dictatorial regime in Nicaragua.”

“I would like to inform here that Brazil repudiates religious persecution wherever it occurs in the world,” he said.

The President of Brazil also said that “other fundamental values for Brazilian society, with implications to the human rights agenda, are the defense of the family, the right to life since conception, the right to self-defense and the repudiation of gender ideology.”

The head of state also praised his Brazil’s agribusiness’ sector. According to him, when the Director-General of the World Trade Organization, Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, visited the country recently, she said that “if it weren't for Brazilian, the planet would go hungry”, as the south American nation feeds over 1 billion people worldwide.

Bolsonaro also mentioned his government efforts to protect the environment, saying that “in the Brazilian Amazon, an area equivalent to Western Europe, more than 80 percent of the forest remains untouched, contrary to what is reported by the mainstream national and international media.”

“It is essential that, when taking care of the environment, we do not overlook people: the Amazon region is home to more than 20 million inhabitants, including indigenous and riverside dwellers, whose livelihood depends on some economic use of the forest,” the President of Brazil concluded.
