Paris, 29 October 2018
Emmanuel Macron, President of the Republic, congratulates Jair Bolsonaro, whom the Brazilian people elected President of Brazil on Sunday 28 October.
France and Brazil maintain a strategic partnership forged on the basis of the shared values of adhering to and promoting democratic principles. It is with due regard for these values that France wishes to continue its cooperation with Brazil, to take up the major present-day challenges for our planet, in the areas of international peace and security as much as in the framework of environmental diplomacy and the commitments of the Paris Agreement on the climate./.
