Brazil Sunday opened a trade office in Jerusalem, in what was perceived as a step towards finally moving the country's embassy in Israel to the iconic city. The opening ceremony was presided over by Deputy Eduardo Bosonaro, son if President Jair Bolsonaro.
Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro visited the Western Wall alongside Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday, becoming the first head of state to do so with an Israeli premier. The visit came after Bolsonaro, sworn in as Brazil's president on January 1, arrived for a three-day trip to Israel on Sunday.
Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro will pay his first official visits to the United States, Chile and Israel this month, in a clear sign of the alliances the far-right leader wants to shore up, official sources said.
