Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro landed in Israel for his first visit to Israel as president on Sunday.

Bolsonaro’s visit, which comes after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s meeting with US President Donald Trump in the White House earlier this month, is part of the diplomatic blitz he has embarked on in the run up to the April 9 election.

Earlier this year, Bolsonaro pledged to open a Jerusalem embassy, and on Wednesday said he was still studying the matter.

His country’s powerful agriculture sector is opposed to moving the embassy from Tel Aviv and angering Arab nations that buy billions of dollars worth of Brazilian halal meat each year.
