WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Joe Biden will look for an “early opportunity” to meet Brazilian President-elect Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, US national security adviser Jake Sullivan said on Thursday.
Speaking at a briefing at the White House, Sullivan said he had been in touch with senior members of Lula’s team and that plans for face-to-face exchanges between the two countries were being worked out.
Biden later told reporters that a date for such a meeting has yet to be set.
