Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro said on Thursday that he could not exclude the possibility of opening a trade office in Jerusalem, ONA reports citing Sputnik.

"It took [US President Donald] Trump nine months to resolve the issue, to provide a final response concerning the embassy. Perhaps, we will open a trade office in Jerusalem", Bolsonaro said, as quoted by Enlace Judio news portal.

Brazil's president is scheduled to pay a visit to Israel on 31 March — 3 April. Representatives of a number of Brazilian agencies express concern over the possible moving of the embassy, as this could seriously worsen the country's relations with the Arab world.
