State of Palestine: Protesters decry Bolsonaro's Brazilian embassy move to Jerusalem

«We have strong Palestinian-Brazilian relations which played a great role in the support of the Palestinian people. Brazil recognised the Palestinian state with 1967 borders in 2010. And it played a great role in the support and voting of the Palestinian national rights in most of the UN Security Council and in the General Assembly's meetings, which served the Palestinian national interests. So... Еще, we hope that the Brazilian President will reconsider this decision and will not take steps to move the embassy and touch the cause of Jerusalem, which is an occupied city according to international law.» Palestinian protesters gathered in front of the Brazilian embassy in Ramallah on Wednesday, demanding the new Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro to backtrack on his decision to relocate the Brazilian embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. «What is required is the immediate retreat. We know the Brazilian people are friends of the Palestinian people and they will not accept this decision,» said the Head of the Union of Palestinian women committees Khitam Saafeen. On November 1, the newly elected Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro claimed in his tweet that he would follow his campaign promises and intends to transfer the Brazilian embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, adding «Israel is a sovereign state and we respect it.»
