Brazil to move embassy to Jerusalem: Bolsonaro

Brazil's new far-right President Jair Bolsonaro said Thursday he was open to discussing his country hosting a U.S. military base "in the future", underlining his stated desire for closer ties with America.

For indigenous leaders and environmental activists, the decision cemented fears that Brazil's new president would roll back years of progress in slowing deforestation.

The newly inaugurated leader also said he is concerned that the latest proposal for the sale of 80 percent of Embraer's commercial aviation business to Boeing could ultimately lead to the US planemaker owning all of the new venture.

Bolsonaro also did not rule out that his country might sign military cooperation deals with the United States.

"Who knows, if we don't have to discuss this issue in the future, depending on what is happening in the world", said Bolsonaro now in a television Interview to a question.

Bolsonaro also reiterated his plans for a presidential decree that would make it easier for Brazilians to legally own guns.

One key test will be whether the new president can gather enough political support to take on the reform of Brazil's hugely expensive state pension obligations.

Camilo Santana, the governor of Ceara state, said that 45 people have been arrested in connection with the dozens of attacks, which have hit 15 cities in the state, including the capital, Fortaleza. These words startled many observers because they refer to a member of the military, in this case a former Army captain, occupying the country's highest office, which has only happened in Brazil during dictatorships that came to power after a coup. Bolsonaro argued it was necessary for people to defend themselves.

A special deployment of Brazilian troops began fanning out in the northern city of Fortaleza Saturday with orders to stop a spike in violent attacks by criminal gangs against banks, buses and shops, officials said.

Much of that task falls to Brazilian Minister of Justice Sergio Moro, a former star judge who headed up Operation Car Wash, an investigation into Brazil's biggest-ever corruption scandal.

Then he expressed wariness about a multi-billion-dollar planned tie-up between planemaker Embraer and USA giant Boeing, sending the Brazilian company's shares diving and calling into question his market-friendly campaign rhetoric.

Embraer shares were down more than 5 percent in late afternoon trading. About in foreign policy.
