The Poor Plight Is the Wealthy Nations’ Responsibility, Says Brazil’s Lula

Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva reinforced his appeal to wealthy nations to be more sensitive to the issue of poverty in the world.

According to Lula, who is on his fifth trip to Africa, the world will only experience peace when poor nations become developed.

Lula affirmed that in order to increase poor nations’ exports, developed nations should reduce the subsidies they give to their farmers.

According to Lula, this is why Brazil is so strongly participating on Doha Round discussions, which concerns this issue at the World Trade Organization (WTO).

"We are selling the idea that in order to benefit the poorest, world commercial geography has to change. It is necessary to give a chance to less developed countries so as to reduce violence, poverty and terrorism."

In Lula’s opinion, poor countries must put more pressure on wealthier nations.

This Thursday, February 9, President Lula leaves Algeria and goes to the Republic of Benin, West Africa.
