"Our house is burning. Literally. The Amazon rainforest - the lungs which produces 20 percent of our planet's oxygen - is on fire. It is an international crisis. Members of the G7 Summit, let's discuss this emergency first order in two days!" Macron said on Twitter.
The French president, who tweeted in French and English, is the latest international figure to raise the alarm over the raging wildfires in the Amazon.
