Brazil spill: President says oil is not Brazil's

Brazil's environment minister says more than 100 tons of oil has been spilt along the northeastern coast since the beginning of September. He also said he did not want to blame another country without proof, or it would cause a problem.

The newsmagazine Epoca reported last week that Petrobras sent a report to environmental protection agency Ibama raising the hypothesis that the oil was from Venezuela.

The Brazilian environmental agency says it has cleaned up more than 100 tonnes of oil which washed up on more than 100 beaches in the northeast.

Defence Minister Rajnath Singh receives IAF’s first Rafale fighter jet
The minister's visit to Paris coincided with the festival of "Dusshera" in India that celebrates the victory of good over evil. India had signed an inter-governmental agreement with France in September 2016 for procurement of 36 Rafale fighter jets.

After an investigation last month, Brazil's navy and the state-controlled oil company Petrobas concluded that the oil was produced overseas, but did not know where, Reuters reported. "It seems to be accidental", said the person familiar with the Petrobras study, who requested anonymity because the report is not public.

State-run oil company Petroleo Brasileiro said on Monday that molecular tests on the organic material in samples of the crude oil showed that they are not compatible with the oils produced and sold by the company. He also said there was no plan to privatize Petrobras, and that Brazil's Amazon states have great exploration potential, with mining a possible source of income.
