Brazil Informed UN Officially about Withdrawal from Migration Pact

The new Government of Brazil has officially informed to the UN about the withdrawal from the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration, Estado de Sao Paulo reported with reference to the sources in the UN. 

According to the newspaper, UN is concerned with Brazil’s decision. The representatives of the organization consider this as a sign of the fact that new Brazilian authorities are ready to review not only its relations with the UN, but also the country’s participation in multilateral deals. The sources noted the fast actions of the Brazilian Government – only eight days after the new Cabinet was formed, the statement about the withdrawal was submitted. 

UNN has written earlier that Brazil informed about the intention to withdraw from the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration after the new President Jair Bolsonaro assumed office.
