Statement was given during the G20 summit in India; 

eventual situation would risk non-compliance with international agreement by the Hague Court

Accused of war crimes, the president of Russia , Vladimir Putin, should not be arrested in Brazil

if he comes to the country for the next G20 summit in 2024,

said President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT) in an interview with Indian TV , in New Delhi, where the group's meeting takes place this weekend.

“What I can say is that, if I am president of Brazil and if he goes to Brazil, there is no reason for him to be arrested,” he declared.

Lula also stated that Putin will be invited to visit Brazil because he must meet him in 2024,

in Russia, due to the Brics meeting, scheduled to be hosted by the Russians next year.

Thus, if Lula does not order Putin's arrest in Brazil, if he comes to the country,

the president will be violating an international agreement to which the country is a signatory.
