Brazil seeks to maintain good relations with both Israel and Iran, and not get involved in the complexities of the Middle East, legislator Arolde de Oliveira said on Wednesday.
Oliveira, a member of Brazil’s lower house, the Chamber of Deputies, supports Brasilia’s continued trade with the Islamic Republic, which reached $2.33 billion in 2011.
Oliveira, along with 24 other parliamentarians from 17 nations, are in Jerusalem for the International Israel Allies Caucus Foundation’s conference of pro-Israel members of national legislatures around the world. They were briefed on the Iranian nuclear threat and participated in a panel to seek a solution to the issue.
