Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and wife Sara at Jewish community event in Rio de Janeiro

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told members of Brazil’s Jewish community at an event in Rio de Janeiro on Friday that despite doubts expressed by media — and the lack of public discussion of the matter — the plan for moving Brazil’s embassy to Jerusalem was still on track.


“Mr. Bolsonaro said this,” Netanyahu related. “‘I will move the embassy to Jerusalem. It’s not a question of if, just a question of when.’ President Trump said the same thing. He moved the embassy. And President Bolsonaro will move the embassy as well.

“He accepted my invitation to visit Israel in the coming months and he’s going to do it, he says, by March. And I look forward to receiving him with the same spirit and the same brotherhood that he received me, and that you are receiving us.”
