Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced he will visit Brasília to attend the inauguration of newly-elected Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, set to take place in December 28.

Speaking at a Likud faction meeting on Monday, Netanyahu called Brazil a “superpower,” and said his visit there will “revolutionize” Brazilian relations with Israel.

Netanyahu went on to complain on what he views as biased media coverage of his work on Israeli foreign relations.

Noting Japanese investment in Israel increased 44-fold in recent years, he complained to those present "you only hear about it when a shoe is placed on a table." 

Netanyahu congratulated Bolsonaro on his victory in October.

“I told him I’m certain his election will lead to a great friendship between our peoples and a strengthening of Brazil-Israel ties," he said at the time.
