Petro reveals the four priority issues on Colombia's agenda with Brazil


The president made the announcement after the electoral victory of leftist Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva was made official.

The president of Colombia, Gustavo Petro, revealed on Monday the priority issues he wants to address in order to develop an agenda with Brazil, after the electoral victory won this Sunday by leftist Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.

Petro detailed at least four fundamental points to work with Lula starting next January 1st, when Lula officially assumes his mandate in Brazil, after becoming the first politician to be elected three times as president of the Republic.

Among the issues, the Colombian president highlighted the rescue of the Amazon rainforest and its scientific research; while as a second point, he expressed his desire to start the path of a new anti-drug policy without violence.

Topics on an agenda with Brazil: 1. The rescue of the Amazon jungle and its scientific research.2. The path of a new non-violent anti-drug policy.3. America’s integrated electrical power grid with clean energy4. Latin American economic integration

The third topic is the Integrated electric power grid of America with clean energies; and the fourth, Latin American economic integration.

Last week Petro considered that saving the Amazon should be a priority for the world, because it is one of the largest plant lungs on the planet and is currently threatened by massive deforestation and destructive economic activity, which puts its biodiversity at risk.

For this reason, the Colombian president has raised the need to establish the “bioeconomy of the jungle”, where the State, companies and farm workers initiate the reforestation of the Amazon and can give the world a new economic model that does not destroy life.

Similarly, he has insisted in changing the focus of the fight against drugs, so that it does not translate into violence against peoples and the land where illicit crops are planted, but instead sets its sights on directly capturing those who really manage the business, the true “owners of drug trafficking “.
