Lula will visit Biden before taking office

Brazil’s President-elect Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva is scheduled to meet US President Joe Biden before taking office.

Lula da Silva’s representative, Fernando Haddad, announced that the president-elect will visit the United States and Argentina.

The PT politician will assume his third term in January next year.

Haddad said that the next Brazilian leader would have received an invitation to go to China, reports the newspaper ‘Folha de S.Paulo’.

However, confirming the trip to the Asian giant is “more difficult” due to lack of time to do it before taking office, he acknowledged.

“Lula will end the year having spoken with the great powers of the world,” Haddad declared, adding that the PT leader has received numerous invitations from high-ranking officials to hold talks, either in person or online.

He affirmed that the election “is attracting a lot of attention from foreign investors”, referring to the presence of the president at the COP27 summit in Egypt, where he managed to start negotiations for Western countries to participate in donations for the Amazon environmental protection fund.

Joe Biden was one of the first presidents to acknowledge Da Silva’s victory.

The president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, also invited Lula to Mexico.

In a call, AMLO invited him to the meeting of the ‘pacific countries’.

Lula joked that neither Brazil nor Argentina are part of this association, but he announced that he will review the agenda and the evolution of political events.

At that time (October 31), he was concerned about Bolsonaro’s reaction to the electoral result.

I don’t know what will happen here in Brazil, because President Bolsonaro, who has lost his lessons, has not spoken.

I don’t know if he’s going to concede or not, so I’m waiting a bit, but it would be a great pleasure to visit.
