After the G7 meeting ABC is reporting that Brazil rejects G7 offer of $US20m Amazon fires aid, accuses West of treating it like a 'colony'.

Brazilian officials did not give a reason for turning down the funds, but Mr Bolsonaro's chief of staff Onyx Lorenzoni, when commenting on the G7 offer of aid, told Brazil's Globo news website: "Thanks, but maybe those resources are more relevant to reforest Europe."

Macron cannot even avoid a predictable fire in a church that is part of the world's heritage, and he wants to give us lessons for our country?" Mr Lorenzoni added, referring to the fire that ravaged Notre Dame cathedral in Paris in April.

He also said Brazil could teach "any nation" how to protect native forests.

Under international pressure to act, Mr Bolsonaro said he might visit the Amazon region this week to check on the firefighting efforts.

It appears the whole thing is over 2 men with one in particular behaving like a spoilt kid.

The articles continues by adding

On Monday, Mr Macron slammed the Brazilian President for "extraordinarily disrespectful comments" about his wife on Facebook and reiterated that Mr Bolsonaro had lied about commitments to deforestation.

Mr Bolsonaro lashed back at him on Twitter, saying Mr Macron's "ludicrous and unnecessary attacks on the Amazon" were unacceptable and accusing him of treating the region "as if we were a colony".
