Mr Netanyahu, who met Mr Bolsonaro last Friday, also said the Brazilian had accepted his invitation to visit Israel, a trip that is likely to take place in March. "My vow is to strengthen Brazil's democracy".

Animal rights activists blocked traffic at a major Toronto intersection on Tuesday, staging a "die-in" to protest the inauguration of Brazil's new far-right president and his proposed environmental policies.

"Congratulations to President [Bolsonaro] who just made a great inauguration speech", Trump wrote on Twitter.

Secretary of State Michael Pompeo said the USA remains committed to Israel's security and stability in the broader Middle East after President Donald Trump provoked concerns of new chaos when he abruptly ordered US troops out of Syria.

Speaking during a meeting with leaders of Brazil's Jewish community in Rio de Janeiro, Netanyahu said the country's President Jair Bolsonaro told him that it was "when, not if" he moves the embassy.

Bolsonaro rose to power as he promised to eradicate the corruption and crime in the country during the election campaign.

Bolsonaro may find that lax protection of the environment and human rights could have negative economic effects, more so than those faced by other far-right leaders, given the spotlight on Brazil's Amazon jungle as protection against global warming and because the country has more murders than any other nation.

In an interview with Record TV on the eve of his inauguration, Bolsonaro lashed out at Brazil's notorious bureaucracy, which makes doing business in the country hard and expensive.

"We are counting on him to free Brazil from the boot of the criminals". "We are going to change the destiny of Brazil".

Israel sees the spread of Tehran's influence in the region as a growing threat, and has carried out scores of air strikes in civil war-torn Syria against suspected military deployments and arms deliveries by Iranian forces supporting Damascus.
