Brazil's far-right president-elect Jair Bolsonaro plans to visit Israel after trips to Chile and the US, according to his future chief-of-staff, Onyx Lorenzoni.

Bolsonaro, who won the national election on Sunday, stated during his campaign that he plans to move the Brazilian embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and close Brazil's Palestinian embassy.

“Is Palestine a country? Palestine is not a country, so there should be no embassy here,” he said in August. “You do not negotiate with terrorists.”
