SAN PAOLO, AUGUST 24 - Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, in a short speech broadcast on unified networks, said that the forest fires in the Amazon, which "are not above the average of the last 15 years," cannot serve as " pretext to impose international sanctions "against Brazil, on the eve of the G7 summit in Biarritz in which several countries, led by France, have said they intend to take measures to ensure environmental protection in the South American country.
