He called the deal an “inappropriate tool” to deal with the migration issue. “Immigration should not be treated as a global problem, but in harmony with the reality and sovereignty of each country,” Araújo said.
Conservative candidate Jair Bolsonaro won the presidential election in October, and will take office at the beginning of next year. On Monday, more than 150 countries in Marrakech joined the UN migration pact, including Brazil’s outgoing administration.
Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU), who had traveled to Morocco for this occasion, praised the agreement. “Germany is a country that, due to its demographic development, needs labour migration outside the EU as well.”
She said that the Compact would be a very good signal for millions of migrants around the world, ensuring that the “universal human rights apply to each and everyone, in each and every country”.
Brazil is the largest country in South America.
