Brazil will move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem: Bolsonaro

Brazil's President-elect Jair Bolsonaro has told an Israeli newspaper he intends to defy the Palestinians and most of the world by moving his country's embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Mr Netanyahu praised it as "historic, [and] correct". Bolsonaro has often expressed admiration for Donald Trump and appears poised to follow the USA president in a radical overhaul of his nation's foreign policy.

The move will follow the lead of the US President Donald Trump-led administration, which acknowledged Jerusalem as the Israeli capital a year ago and, in May, shifted their embassy from Tel Aviv. The Palestinians claim East Jerusalem, which was captured by Israel in the 1967 Six-Day War, to be the capital of their state.

He has stated that his first global trip as president will be to Israel.

The Arab League on Friday called on Brazilian President-elect Jair Bolsonaro to revoke his decision to relocate the Brazilian embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.

Bolsonaro publicly offered Moro the post after being swept to the presidency Sunday on a wave of anti-establishment anger fueled partly by the judge's probe into the large-scale looting of state oil company Petrobras.

Angered by Trump's move, Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas boycotted his administration, saying Washington is no longer qualified to serve as the sole mediator in the decades-long conflict with Israel, and that an worldwide mechanism should be devised to replace the USA in the so-called peace process.

Current Environment Minister Edson Duarte in a statement warned that the move could "overload the ministry with so many and such varied agendas it would threaten Brazil's role in global decision-making forums".

The plan had drawn warnings from activists that he was selling out Brazil's natural resources to his backers in the agrobusiness lobby.

Year-on-year, industrial output was down two percent, said the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Statistics.

A third person said Moro's conditions included the passage of new anti-corruption legislation and expansion of the Justice Ministry's responsibilities to include the federal police and the auditing office that roots out graft in the federal budget.

He repeated his oft-used line that environmentalists are "Shiites", a word he uses to imply extremism.

Although politicians of all stripes have fallen, Moro has been accused of being particularly merciless on the left - especially Lula, Brazil's president from 2003 to 2010.

John Bolton, Trump's national security adviser, has described Bolsonaro and Trump as "like-minded" individuals.

Lula tried to stage a presidential comeback in this year's elections, but the courts barred his candidacy.
