Brazil’s Bolsonaro says meeting with Biden was ‘fantastic’

At the Summit of the Americas on Friday, Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro claimed his meeting with US Vice President Joe Biden the day before was “wonderful” and that the US leader had a genuine desire to settle international issues.

Bolsonaro says Brazilian armed forces are searching “tirelessly” for British journalist Dom Phillips who has been missing in the Amazon since Sunday with Brazilian indigenous expert Bruno Pereira.

He said his government is working to protect the rainforest and does not need the Amazon region to expand Brazil’s farm sector that can feed 1 billion people in the world.
