President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT) travels to Washington, in the United States, to meet with Joe Biden at the beginning of next month. At the meeting, the heads of state are expected to address a “broad common agenda”.
According to the assessment of CNN together with the Planalto Palace and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MRE), the forecast is that the president of Brazil will leave for the US capital on February 9, so that, the next day, he can meet with the US president.
Officially, Planalto and MRE report that only the agenda for the 10th, with Biden, is closed. Lula’s other appointments in Washington have not yet been defined, as well as the probable date of his return and the place where the president will stay.
It will be the third country to be visited by Lula in less than 40 days in office. From Argentina, where he traveled this week, the Brazilian representative will travel to Uruguay – in his first two commitments abroad since he took office.
According to the White House, the President of the United States, Joe Biden, invited Lula to visit Washington on January 9, the day after the criminal and terrorist attacks on the headquarters of the Three Powers, in Brasília, in the same call in which they discussed the invasions of public buildings.
“President Biden invited President Lula to visit Washington in early February for in-depth consultations on a broad common agenda, and President Lula accepted the invitation,” the Brazilian government reported at the time.
According to the Planalto Palace, in the call, Biden “transmitted the unconditional support of the United States to democracy in Brazil and the will of the Brazilian people, expressed in the last elections in Brazil, won by President Lula” and “condemned the violence and the attack on democratic institutions and the peaceful transfer of power”.
