Amazon Fires High on G7 Leaders’ Agenda

Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro announced plans to send armed forces to the fires in the Amazon the day before world leaders arrive at the G7 summit, reports CNN.

While Bolsonaro has described the burning in the Amazon as a result of warmer weather, French President Emmanuel Macron said he wants the fires on the summit agenda.

Some of the countries attending have said they would block a trade deal between the European Union and Brazil’s economic and political bloc unless the country takes action.
