Written by on October 5, 2019

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro announced that he will attend the enthronement ceremony of Japanese Emperor Naruhito. The event is scheduled for October 22nd as part of a tour to the Middle East and Asia.

During a Monday press conference outside the Alvorada Palace in Brasilia, the Brazilian president said he would travel to Japan to represent the South American nation in the enthronement ceremony. Bolsonaro also joked with local reporters, saying that officials made him an outfit to attend the event that he “never thought he would wear, with a bow tie and all.”

The Brazilian government also said that after Asia’s second-largest economy, Bolsonaro will make officials visits to China and then Middle Eastern nations Qatar, United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia.

On NTN24 Club de Prensa, political analyst Antonio de la Cruz said that the Brazilian president’s tour is just a diplomatic effort to build bridges with Asia and the Middle East.

“Bolsonaro is clearly trying to restore the good relationship between Brazil and these parts of the world, considering that he had brutally criticized China and even followed the footsteps of the Trump administration by moving its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, which caused a lot of outrage in the Middle East,” de la Cruz said.
