Brazil slams France, rejects G7 funding to fight wildfires in Amazon


Brazil rejected on Monday a 20-million U.S.
dollars emergency aid to help battle the wildfires in the Amazon rainforest from the G7 nations,…slamming
the gesture as “colonialist.” According to AFP news agency,…a top official
mocked French President Emmanuel Macron, saying (quote) “Macron cannot avoid a foreseeable
fire in a church that is a world heritage site”, referring to a fire that broke out
in the iconic Notre Dame de Paris cathedral in April. The official added that the French president
should take care of “his home and his colonies.”
