“Amazon is not the world's eye. It belongs to Brazil. The media and leaders of other countries should not worry about it. We can take care of the Amazon.” Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro made the controversial statement at the 74th United Nations General Assembly in New York, USA, recently.

This is not the first time Bolsonaro has made such a statement, as the world's major culprit for the Amazon Fire. Just a few weeks ago, when the Amazon fire was raging, "the Amazon belongs to Brazil. It is a Brazilian heritage. It should work for the benefit of Brazil." He has stated that

Allegations of Amazon Burning and Bolsonaro

Environmentalists have been blaming the Brazilian government for years on the fate of the Amazon. They say the timber dealers and planters are cutting down the trees and destroying the Amazon rainforest.

A few years ago, Brazilian President Jair Bolzාරnaro authorized several companies to arbitrarily cut down trees and burn forests in order to boost the national economy. Because of this, many heads of state use the term "mechanical machine saw pilot" and "Nero that burns the Amazon." However, the Brazilian president sees the criticism in this regard as an allegation against him, on a personal level and against the government.

French President Emmanuel Macron says the Amazon forest fire is an international crisis. The French president has stated that this should be a particular focus of the G7 summit. In response, Brazilian President Jere Bolznaro declared that the French president was using the issue for political gain.

Especially during the G7 summit, French President Emmanuel Macron is accused of the most blame for President Javier Bolsonaro.

The 2019 G7 Summit was held in France at the time of the fire and the Brazilian government has agreed to provide the US $ 22.2 million in support of the fire. President Bolzonaro, however, has repeatedly refused to receive the grant. He attributes the involvement of the leaders of the state to the work of the government through the funds provided to extinguish the fire.

In addition, Bolzonaro says the French president has personally insulted him and should apologize publicly. International media reports say that for some time, a rivalry between the two was also a major reason for their refusal to accept the grant. Bolzonaro continues to say that he thinks of his country as a French colony and that it is not.
