Brazil President Arrives in Israel, Will he move embassy?


Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro was heading for an official visit to Israel Sunday morning, where he was expected to announce whether he will move the Brazilian embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Bolsonaro, a right-wing firebrand who had made headlines for playing down the brutality of the country’s past military dictatorship, is set to arrive in Israel for a two-day trip.

He has repeatedly promised to move the embassy to Jerusalem, drawing praise from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Donald Trump despite longstanding complaints that such moves would complicate efforts to reach peace between Israel and the Palestinians.
