Bolsonaro's right-leaning administration is likely to pursue closer ties to Netanyahu's, with which it's more ideologically compatible than the previous Brazilian government.

Netanyahu explained, "Mr. Bolsonaro said, 'I will move the embassy to Jerusalem".

In their most recent move, police recommended Netanyahu be indicted over regulatory benefits allegedly granted to telecoms firm Bezeq in exchange for positive coverage from a related media company.

In order to achieve the former, he wants to loosen laws on gun ownership so that "honest citizens" can carry arms and "protect themselves".

That move, though, could be challenged by Congress. In his speech to Congress on Tuesday, Bolsonaro struck a conciliatory tone, saying "I reaffirm my commitment to building a society without discrimination or division".

"We attach enormous importance to Brazil, and Brazil in the context of Latin America", he added.

But his right-wing politics have made others in Brazil nervous.

And President Bolsonaro will move the embassy as well.

In foreign policy, Bolsonaro has signalled he plans major changes and that he may follow Trump's lead on some issues. Whether Brazil, which has the largest chunk of the Amazon basin in South America, formally stays in the accord may be all but irrelevant: Scientists say the country won't meet its targets on emissions reductions if Bolsonaro does what he has promised.

He is the first Israeli prime minister to visit Brazil.

The incoming president, who spent almost three decades in Congress, has also drawn worldwide criticism for his plans to roll back regulations in the Amazon and his disinterest in social programs in a country that is one of the world's most unequal in terms of income. The Israeli leader - fighting multiple corruption trails against him and his family at home - described US President Donald Trump's decision to re-introduce sanctions as a "courageous, determined and important" move that, he said, would contribute to stability and security. Meanwhile, the incoming Brazilian government rescinded invitations to the inauguration that had been sent to Cuban and Venezuelan leaders, traditional allies of the Workers' Party.

Bolsonaro rose to power as he promised to eradicate the corruption and crime in the country during the election campaign.

As a fringe politician with few alliances, Bolsonaro was one of the few to emerge unscathed from the scandals that plagued more prominent colleagues.

The second round of presidential election was held in Brazil on October 28.
