Colombian President Gustavo Petro and his Brazilian counterpart, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, will participate this Saturday in the closing ceremonies of the Encounter on the Road to the Amazon Summit.


Brazil and Colombia intend to expand connectivity in the Amazon

Both leaders will meet at the headquarters of the National University of Colombia in the city of Leticia, moments before the closing of the Amazon summit that has been taking place since July 6.

The closing acts will be attended by indigenous peoples, non-governmental organizations and civil society, as well as regional and local authorities.

The meeting brought together representatives from Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Peru, Suriname and Venezuela with the aim of creating a series of proposals and commitments for the protection of the Amazon rainforest.

The agreements reached at the summit in the city of Leticia are expected to be endorsed at the Amazon Summit of Presidents that will take place in the Brazilian city of Bélem de Pará on August 8 and 9.

Among the issues that will be on the event's agenda is the well-being of the approximately 400 indigenous peoples who live in the Amazon and who face continuous threats to their lands and ways of life.

The Amazon summit in Bélem de Pará will also seek to rescue the principles of the Amazon Cooperation Treaty of 1978.

From this agreement, the Amazon Cooperation Treaty Organization (OTCA) was born in 1995, whose last summit was held in 2009.
