Brazilian President will only accept an offer of international aid to fight thousands of fires raging in the Amazon if French leader retracts offensive comments.
The two leaders have become embroiled in a deeply personal and public war of words in recent days.
With Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro mocking Emmanuel Macron's wife on Facebook and accusing the French president of disrespecting Brazil's sovereignty.
Bolsonaro's Chief of Staff Onyx Lorenzoni also said Brazil would reject the G7 offer of millions of dollars in aid, although his office said that was his personal view.
