Brazil “Is Back,” Says Lula After Election Victory

His presidency will mark Brazil's return to international collaboration for the resolution of common problems such as the struggle against climate change.

UNITED STATES: President Joe Biden greeted the Brazilian democratic process just 40 minutes after Lula's victory in elections that he described as "free, fair and reliable."

SPAIN: President Pedro Sanchez said that Brazilians have decided to "bet on progress and hope" and that he will work with Lula "for social justice, equality and against climate change."

GERMANY: Foreign Affairs Minister Annalena Baerbock stated that "although one person won, in reality many won. It is a triumph of Brazilian democracy", and that there was a second winner: the climate.

"Our children must live in security and we need to preserve the forest. The decision of the Brazilian voters offers hope that Brazil will stop cutting down the forests and that Brazil will join us in the fight against the ecological crisis. It is a great victory," he said.

UNITED KINGDOM: Prime Minister Rishi Sunak assured that he hoped to collaborate with Lula in areas ranging from "the growth of the world economy to the protection of the planet's natural resources and the promotion of democratic values."

EUROPEAN UNION: The European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen highlighted the need to "address pressing global challenges, from food security to trade and climate change", while the President of the European Council referred to "global challenges: peace and stability, prosperity and climate change.
