Bolsonaro wants Brazilian embassy in Israel to Jerusalem move

The new president of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, that the embassy of his country in Israel moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

The right-wing populist Bolsonaro had during his campaign has made clear that he advocated the relocation of the embassy. In the interview with the conservative Israeli newspaper Israel Hayom , was returned to that announcement. “You should be able to decide what the capital of Israel, not other countries’, was his reasoning.

If he word, then follows the Brazilian Trump’ the example of his American colleague. In december 2017, the Us president has already announced that he Jerusalem as the capital of Israel would recognize. The American embassy was on may 14th from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem moved.

Guatemala and Paraguay had then also let them know that their embassy would move, but in the meantime Paraguay again came back on that decision.

The statute of the city of Jerusalem is a very sensitive point. Israel considers the whole of Jerusalem as its capital, but the Palestinians hope East Jerusalem ever the capital of their future state. The international community insists on a negotiated solution.
