Brazil | President says Amazon countries to meet next month to talk protection, development

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro said Wednesday that South American countries containing parts of the Amazon rainforest will meet next month to discuss development and environmental protection of the forest, which has been ravaged by wildfires in recent days. 


He said after meeting Chilean President Sebastián Piñera that all of the Amazon countries except Venezuela will meet  “to come up with our own unified strategy for preserving the environment, and also for exploration sustainable in our region,” according to The Associated Press.
