the president elect Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva should go to United States for a meeting with the president of the United States, Joe Bideneven before taking office, on January 1, said this Wednesday the former mayor of São Paulo, Fernando Haddad🇧🇷

According to a source familiar with the matter, the invitation should be made on Monday, during a meeting between Lula and two envoys of the US president, the national security adviser, Jake Sullivan, and the advisor for Latin America, Juan Gonzalez, who will be in Brasilia.

The date has not yet been defined, but the visit should take place before Christmas.

Haddad, who has spent the last three days accompanying the president-elect at meetings in Brasília, said that Lula has received several invitations, but, due to lack of time, he should only go to the United States and Argentina before taking office.

Soon after being elected, Lula announced that he intended to make several trips even before taking office, including the United States, Argentina, China and some European country.

Time constraints, however, and the need to invest personally in negotiating the Bolsa Família PEC, in addition to participating in COP27, the United Nations climate summit in Egypt, would have initially changed the plans of the president-elect, who was planning a trip to the USA in the first months of 2023.

Biden was one of the first heads of state to congratulate Lula for his victory, still on the Sunday night of the election, in a position articulated by the North Americans – and other countries– of immediately recognizing the electoral result and helping to avoid further questions. The US president spoke by phone the day after his inauguration.

At the inauguration, the US government should be represented by Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, according to a source interviewed by Reuters.
