Bolsonaros security adviser to Augusto Heleno confirmed that Brazil, as the United States of America wanted to move the Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Unabashedly the most pro-Israel candidate for the presidency since at least the 1980s, Bolsonaro asserted throughout his campaign that "Palestine" is "not a country" and that Brazil should follow the U.S.'s initiative and recognize Jerusalem as Israel's rightful capital.
Bolsonaro declared Brazil and the U.S. to be "friends" and said in his first post-inauguration television interview he was open to looking at his country hosting a USA military base, citing regional instability from neighbouring Venezuela and its backer Russian Federation.
A Brazilian judge last month twice issued injunctions against the deal, but both times was overruled by a higher court.
Bolsonaro, who said he is a fan of President Donald Trump, said he supports US policy with regard to opposing the "authoritarian regimes" of left-wing governments in Venezuela, Cuba, and Nicaragua.
Benjamin Netanyahu became the first Israeli Prime Minister to visit Brazil this week when he attended Bolsonaro's inauguration.
"It's only a matter of when it will be implemented", he said. "There is a clear desire for that to happen, but there is still no decision on a date", said Heleno.
At TeleSUREnglish, Ignacio Limas reported that there is speculation in Brazil "that the restructuring of the pension system may take the shape of the Chilean retirement system", which is heralded by conservatives in the US but has been blamed for helping to usher in some of the worst wealth inequality in the developed world.

But Pelosi will also have to pursue the Democratic agenda, with plenty of opportunities to confront President Trump . The Democratic package includes a bill to fund the Department of Homeland Security and other federal agencies.
Separately, Bolsonaro met with the head of the World Trade Organisation, Roberto Azevedo, who said the government's sharp rebukes of globalism were shared by many other countries and that the trade body was making changes.
'Brazil is an important country because it is part of the BRICS economic group.
Araujo's words were not a threat, Azevedo said.
His chief of staff, Onyx Lorenzoni, hastily said Bolsonaro was "wrong" on the tax hike.
Bolsonaro told reporters his government would have to raise the IOF tax on financial transactions to compensate for tax breaks extended to Brazil's poor north and northeast.
The possibility of a US base in Brazil was not openly discussed during Pompeo's recent visit to Brasilia.
Jair Bolsonaro is a declared right-winger, an opponent of gay marriage, abortion and liberal parties, and has announced that he intend to rule with a "firm hand". He did not give further details.
