Brazil's President Open To Possibility Of U.S. Military Base, Expresses Russia Concerns

Bolsonaro, a far-right former paratrooper intent on forging close ties with the USA and Israel, signalled before taking office that he planned to follow President Donald Trump's lead in moving Brazil's embassy to Jerusalem.

He called Bolsonaro's decision alarming and said it may put the future of the Amazon rain forest in jeopardy.

USA officials haven't made any recent public statements calling for a base in Brazil.

The Agriculture Ministry will also oversee the demarcation of lands belonging to Quilombolas, ancestors of slaves who live in independent communities in Brazil.

The primary country objecting to it is Iran, he said, and not Arab nations. "We may ink an agreement in the specified area", Bolsonaro added.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu travelled to Brazil for Bolsonaro's January 1 inauguration, and after the pair met Netanyahu said that Bolsonaro told him that moving the embassy was a matter of "when, not if".

Bolsonaro had backtracked on the embassy move soon after declaring in early November that he meant to go through with it.

Despite admittedly "hating being pregnant", Kim still found it challenging to see someone else carry her child. So, Kendall's been a great influence on him, and we've won every game she's been at but one so far".

Sao Paulo's stock market, meanwhile, jumped 3.56 percent to a record closing of 91,012 points as new Cabinet ministers reinforced the intent to privatize state-owned companies and a Brazilian arms maker benefited from Bolsonaro's plans to loosen gun controls.

By the end of the weekend, 300 soldiers will be patrolling that city and other towns in Ceara state in a bid to halt the rampage, national public security secretary Guilherme Teophilo said, according to government news agency Agencia Brasil.

Xi Jinping said he appreciated the statement made by Jair Bolsonaro soon after winning the elections, when he said that China is a major cooperation partner of China.

A provisional decree, which could become permanent if ratified in Congress within 120 days, allows Cruz to practically silence NGOs struggling to protect the environment or worldwide green associations such as Greenpeace, for which Bolsonaro said during the campaign that they are "pushing their nose in Brazil".

"My rapprochement with the USA is an economic issue, but it could be military as well". Brazilian markets soared on promises to shrink government.

Nonetheless, Bolsonaro tweeted on Thursday morning that privatization of 12 Brazilian airports and 4 ports should attract 7 billion reais ($1.85 billion) in initial investment.
