SAO PAULO (Reuters) – Brazil’s president Jair Bolsonaro said on Thursday that he wanted the country’s vast Amazon rainforest to be exploited “in a reasonable way” and criticized the creation of new indigenous reserves by previous governments.
In a Facebook live video, the far-right leader also said he planned to travel to Hungary and Poland in the second half of the year.
