President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT) spoke by telephone this Monday afternoon (9) with the President of the United States, Joe Biden. During the conversation, the US representative invited the PT candidate to visit Washington in early February and discuss common agendas between the countries.
Biden’s call comes a day after the terrorist attacks promoted by supporters of former President Jair Bolsonaro (PL) in Brasilia. The petista accepted the invitation of the American president.
Biden condemned the violence and attack on democratic institutions and the peaceful transfer of power. Lula and the American president also pledged to work in partnership on issues faced by Brazil and the United States, such as climate change, economic development, peace and security.
On Sunday (8), Biden condemned the acts in the federal capital as an “attack on democracy”. “I condemn the attack on democracy and the peaceful transfer of power in Brazil,” wrote Biden on his Twitter. “Brazilian democratic institutions have our full support and the will of the Brazilian people must not be undermined. I look forward to continuing to work with [o presidente] Lula”.
I condemn the assault on democracy and on the peaceful transfer of power in Brazil. Brazil’s democratic institutions have our full support and the will of the Brazilian people must not be undermined. I look forward to continuing to work with @LulaOficial.
