Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro (PL, right), a candidate for re-election, said Monday, 22, that more than 60% of Brazil's green areas are preserved, despite criticism from leaders and non-governmental organizations regarding deforestation.
This statement was made during an interview with the Jornal Nacional, a news show.
"Brazil preserves 66% of its green space. Brazil cannot be attacked in this way. Without the Brazilian agricultural industry, the world will starve," he said.
Speaking about environmental issues in the Amazon region, Bolsonaro referred to the large green spaces preserved in the region, which he compared to Western Europe.
