Biden ‘backs’ Lula after riots, invites him to Washington

Joe Biden invited his Brazilian counterpart Lula to come and see him in Washington in early February, according to a joint statement following a telephone interview on Monday, which specifies that the invitation has been accepted.

The American president expressed during this exchange with Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva the “unfailing support of the United States for Brazilian democracy and the expression of the free will of the Brazilian people, as expressed in the recent election presidential election that President Lula won”.

This phone call comes the day after an attack by supporters of former far-right president Jair Bolsonaro against the main places of power in Brasilia.

1,200 arrests

The two leaders also promised to “work together closely on the challenges facing the United States and Mexico, including climate change, economic development, peace and security”.

Lula, as well as the heads of Congress and the Supreme Court, have forcefully affirmed the need for democracy in Brazil, the day after the invasions and looting of three emblematic places of power in Brasilia by unleashed Bolsonarists.

Camps of radicals who still reject Lula’s victory more than two months after his election were dismantled by the police, who also made 1,200 arrests, signing a recovery after the scenes of chaos the day before.

Scenes that obviously recall the assault on the Capitol in Washington on February 6, 2021 by supporters of another president, Donald Trump, the predecessor of Joe Biden.
