Brazilian President Luis Inacio Lula da Silva will defend the country's biofuel production at the upcoming 63rd UN General Assembly, his spokesmen Marcelo Baumbach announced Thursday.

At the UN gathering, which started on Sept. 16 at the UN headquarters in New York, Lula will stress that biofuels should not be blamed for the international food crisis and reaffirm the country's commitment to developing biofuels despite the recent discovery of huge oil resources, Baumbach said.

The president will also reiterate Brazil's bid for a permanent seat at the UN Security Council, said the spokesman.

Lula will also call for more resources and actions to fight poverty and hunger, in particular a concentrated effort to increase food production in less-developed countries and eliminate subsidies that developed nations give to their farmers.

Baumbach added that the international financial crisis is not expected to be addressed at any specific meetings, but might be informally discussed at presidents' bilateral meetings.
