US representatives will travel to Brazil on Monday 5 to meet with President-elect Lula and the next government’s transition team.
The information was confirmed by the White House in a note this Friday (2).
According to the US government, National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan and other members of his department will travel to Brasília to meet with representatives of the transition team.
The US National Council confirmed that alongside Lula, Admiral Flávio Rocha, the Jair Bolsonaro government’s Special Secretary for Strategic Affairs, and Senator Jaques Wagner will attend the talks.
“During the talks, Sullivan will discuss how the United States and Brazil will continue to work together on common issues such as tackling climate change, protecting food security, promoting democracy and managing regional migration,” the White House note said.
The US government stressed that the planned visit continues the initial dialogue between Joe Biden and Lula in October 2022, when the Democratic president “committed to opening channels of communication between the two countries during the transition”.
