Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro said on Wednesday that South American countries would meet to determine a common policy in defense of the Amazon, and took another swipe at the G7 group of rich nations for its offer of $20 million aid, APA reports citing Reuters.

After a meeting with his Chilean counterpart Sebastian Pinera in Brasilia, Bolsonaro said Brazil would accept an offer from Chile of four aircraft to help combat the Amazon rainforest fires.
