Bolsonaro writes letter to Biden promising to end illegal deforestation by 2030

Brazil President Jair Bolsonaro wrote a letter to his US counterpart Joe Biden in which he has pledged to end the illegal deforestation in Brazil by 2030.  

“In an unequivocal measure of support for your efforts, we wish to reaffirm our commitment to eliminate illegal deforestation in Brazil by 2030,” said Bolsonaro’s seven-page letter addressed to  Biden. 

“However, achieving this goal will require considerable resources,” including from “the international community, governments and the private sector,” it said. 

The letter comes a week before Biden hosts a virtual climate summit with 40 world leaders, including Bolsonaro.
