Brazil moving its embassy to Jerusalem matter of when, not if: Netanyahu

"I have no intention to resign, firstly because there will be nothing (to come from the probes), secondly because the law does not oblige me to do so", Netanyahu said in Rio, referring to the hearing process.

In July of this year, Bolsonaro appeared to have gotten cold feet after Egypt, citing "scheduling issues", cancelled the Brazilian leaders November trip to Cairo to meet with President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi.

"I will work tirelessly so that Brazil reaches its destiny", the new president said at his swearing-in ceremony in front of Brazil's Congress. Authorities launched the largest security operation ever for a Brazilian presidential inauguration, mobilising over 3000 police officers, firefighters, and soldiers.

Since Bolsonaro rode a populist wave of anti-establishment sentiment to a presidential victory in October 2018, the former military general's environmental plans have set off alarm bells among Indigenous communities and environmentalists over the fate of the Amazon rain forest. He added, however, that "relations with Brazil will eventually be continued".

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

But many citizens blame the Workers' Party for a devastating recession from which Brazil is only now emerging.

Among them was Lorena Abdaba, 32, a professor who travelled 33 hours by bus from her native state of Espirito Santo to attend the inauguration.

Bolsonaro has served seven terms in Brazil's lower house of Congress, the Chamber of Deputies, before being elected President.

Paul Pogba: Manchester United are now playing as they should do - offensively
United were at their most threatening down his side, and he was beaten far too easily by Rashford for the first goal. One change could be made in the back-line.

As he spoke, supporters began to chant "Myth!"

An estimated half-million spectators were expected to cheer Bolsonaro in Brasilia.

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

While he was taking power with sky-high approval ratings, many in Brazil feared his stated nostalgia for the country's military dictatorship that ruled 1964 to 1985, his hardline approach to fighting crime and his record of disparaging women and minorities. He has courted US President Donald Trump, a politician he admires and emulates.

The US was represented by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who met Netanyahu on the sidelines of the event.

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.

Brazilian businesses are eager to see Bolsonaro take office and install a team of orthodox economists led by investment banker Paulo Guedes, who has promised quick action in bringing Brazil's unsustainable budget deficit under control.
