Brazil Opens Israel Trade Mission In Jerusalem, Short of Full Embassy Move

According to Reuters, Brazil opened a new trade mission to Israel in Jerusalem on Sunday, appearing to back away from sings that it would follow the United States by moving its embassy to the contested city.

The announcement came during a visit by Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital in late 2017 and moving the U.S. embassy there last May.

Bolsonaro had suggested in January he would follow suit with the embassy.
