Lula remains in this city, where the day before with his speech he opened the 78th session of the United Nations General Assembly.
In addition to Zelensky, the Brazilian leader will also meet this Wednesday with his U.S. counterpart, Joe Biden.
According to the former labor leader, the request for the meeting between Zelensky and himself came from that European country.
The Itamaraty Palace, headquarters of the Brazilian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, offered two schedules for the meeting between the leaders, one of which was accepted by Zelensky.
When questioned about the expectation for the meeting with the Ukrainian, the Brazilian president affirmed that the conversation will be between “two presidents of countries, each one with his problems, each one with his visions”.
“I will talk about the problems that (Zelensky) wants to talk to me about”, he remarked.
The meeting will be closed and the press will not be allowed to follow the conversation.
