Israeli PM to Skip Brazil Presidential Inauguration

RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will cut a visit to Brazil short, skipping incoming President Jair Bolsonaro's inauguration.

Brazilian paper O Globo reports Wednesday that Netanyahu decided to shorten his weeklong visit to just two days after his coalition announced the dissolution of the Knesset and hastened elections to April 9.

Netanyahu has had several positive interactions with the incoming Bolsonaro government.

On Nov. 1 Bolsonaro announced on Twitter his plans to move the Brazilian Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Several Arab nations criticized the decision. Shortly after Bolsonaro's tweet, Netanyahu stated his intention to attend the inauguration.

Despite high approval ratings, corruption investigations have cast a shadow over Netanyahu's fourth consecutive run for office.
