"Given the attitude of Brazil in recent weeks, the President of the Republic can only note that President Bolsonaro lied to him at the Summit (G20, Ed) of Osaka," said the Elysee, estimating that "President Bolsonaro has decided not to respect his climate commitments nor to commit to biodiversity". "In these circumstances, France opposes the Mercosur agreement as it stands", continues the French presidency.
