Such steps do not contribute to promote calm and stability in the region. Rather, they provide tailwind to terrorism, and naturally affect Brazil’s capacity to wield influence.

 Israel disappointed by recall of Brazilian Ambassador for consultations

 

(Communicated by the Foreign Ministry Spokesperson)
Israel expresses its disappointment in the decision of Brazil’s government to recall its ambassador for consultations. This decision does not reflect the level of relations between the countries and ignores Israel’s right to defend itself. Such steps do not contribute to promote calm and stability in the region. Rather, they provide tailwind to terrorism, and naturally affect Brazil’s capacity to wield influence.
Israel expects support from its friends in its struggle against Hamas, which is recognized as a terror organization by many countries around the world.
