Norway has criticized Brazil’s breach of an agreement to grant aid to the Amazon rain forest, which holds more than 60 percent, and is estimated to provide Norwegian aid to Brazil 900 million dollars, which has been provided since 2008.

According to the Spanish newspaper El Pais, Norway announced the suspension of aid to the Amazon Fund for its unwillingness to deforest in this form from the Amazon and the negligence of the Brazilian government towards those forests.

“Isn’t Norway killing the whales there, in the Arctic? Oil is exploited there too?”

Tensions between the two countries are due to the administration of Michel Tamer (2016-2018), but have worsened since the arrival of Bolsonaro, a climate-skeptic who encourages the exploitation of natural resources in protected areas.

Data showing significant progress in deforestation in recent months put the global environmental issue at the forefront, although Bolsonaro questioned its validity.

The latest data, as of July, show that cleared areas have almost quadrupled compared to the same month of 2018.
