Brasilia, Nov 14 (Prensa Latina) President-elect Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva will travel to Egypt on Monday to participate in the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP27) so as to replace Brazil in the environmental scene and diplomacy.

According to sources from the Workers’ Party (PT), quoted by O Globo newspaper, the former unionist will arrive at the Egyptian resort of Sharm El-Sheikh, the venue of COP27, on Tuesday.

He expects to coordinate bilateral contacts with environmental representatives of the United States, China, and Germany on the same day.

Lula, invited to the Conference by Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, with whom he expects to meet on Friday, will also hold talks with US Special Presidential Envoy for Climate Change John Kerry. Still, the parties are working to align their agendas.

In the exchange with Kerry, the former labor leader will redefine the relationship between Brazil and the United States, starting with the environmental issue.

According to the sources, he will also make two important announcements: creating a climate authority in Brazil and requesting the country to host COP30 in 2025.

On Wednesday, Lula will attend an event where participants will show an initiative called Charter of the Amazon: a common agenda for climate transition.
