Duma speaker to lead Russian delegation to president's inauguration ceremony in Brazil

Bolsonaro leaves the transition government building in Brasilia Brazil

Netanyahu was in Brazil to attend Tuesday's inauguration of the Latin American country's new, pro-Israel president, Jair Bolsonaro.

Photo provided by Agencia Estado shows Brazil's President-elect Jair Bolsonaro (C-L) and his wife Michelle Bolsonaro arriving at Brazil's National Congress prior to his inauguration ceremony in Brasilia, Brazil, on January 1, 2019. "My vow is to strengthen Brazil's democracy".

Bolsonaro takes over from deeply unpopular center-right president Michel Temer, who was effectively a caretaker figure following the impeachment of leftist leader Dilma Rousseff, booted from office in 2016 for fiddling the government books.

"Congratulations to President [Bolsonaro] who just made a great inauguration speech", Trump wrote on Twitter.

Bolsonaro promptly thanked Trump, adding: "under God's protection, we shall bring prosperity and progress to our people!"

Bolsonaro said in early November he meant to follow the lead of U.S. President Donald Trump in moving his country's embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

In a sign of his leanings, Bolsonaro warmly welcomed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to Brazil for his inauguration, and both leaders spoke of their "brotherhood".

The United States quit the 2015 Joint Cooperative Plan of Action (JCPOA) nuclear deal with Iran previous year and re-imposed two rounds of sanctions that earlier had been waived in return for Tehran scaling down its atomic energy program.

Amazon has record-breaking festive season
Among the top sellers were Amazon devices including the all-new Echo Dot , Fire TV Stick 4K with Alexa Voice Remote and Echo. As a Christmas gift, a lot of people got Alexa or Amazon's Echo Dot 2 wireless speakers.

Bolsonaro is hosting Netanyahu and leaders of a number of other counties for his inauguration, which is taking place in the Brazilian capital, Brasilia, on Tuesday.

He was propelled to victory by his campaign promises to curb Brazil's rampant corruption and crime.

"I call on all congressmen to help me rescue Brazil from corruption, criminality and ideological submission", he said, earning a congratulatory message from Trump.

The Israeli statement also noted that Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales and Benjamin Netanyahu's wife Sara Netanyahu had spoken with Hernandez by phone about the embassy issue while she visited Guatemala last month.

Pension reform will be Bolsonaro's biggest challenge since he has yet to build a base in Congress, where he has eschewed the political horse-trading that has traditionally helped Brazilian presidents govern the nation of almost 210 million people.

"We are counting on him to free Brazil from the boot of the criminals".

The US ambassador to the United Nations at the time, Nikki Haley, heaped fulsome praise on Honduras for its UN vote, saying it showed the two countries' bonds were evident.

On Sunday, the Prime Minister of Iraq, Adil Abdul-Mahdi, told reporters that a security delegation had met with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Damascus, and hinted at a bigger Iraqi role in the fight against the Islamic State (IS) in Syria as the U.S. plans to withdraw from the country.
