Israel PM says Brazil embassy move sure thing

Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu says Brazil moving its embassy to Jerusalem is a sure thing.

Brazilian new organization UOL is reporting that Netanyahu made the statement Sunday during a meeting with Jewish community members in Rio de Janeiro.

Netanyahu is in Brazil to attend incoming President Jair Bolsonaro's Jan. 1 inauguration. The prime minister stopped a few days early in Rio to meet with Bolsonaro as well as members of the local Jewish community.

So far only two nations have moved their embassy to Jeruselum, the United States and Guatemala.
