Brazil's new president gives Agriculture Ministry power to decide on Indigenous lands

Brazil's President-elect Jair Bolsonaro salutes Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

"Congratulations to President @jairbolsonaro who just made a great inauguration speech", the U.S. president tweeted.

Bolsonaro, meanwhile, has said his education ministry will stop "Marxist trash" being taught in schools and universities - another swipe at the Workers Party, which greatly boosted access to education for the poor and blacks.

The prime minister told the press ahead of the meeting-held in Brazil's capital after the inauguration of the country's new president, Jair Bolsonaro-the main topics of discussion was to be with the withdrawal of US troops from Syria and Iranian attempts to establish a military presence in the war-torn country.

"This is the beginning of Brazil's liberation from socialism, political correctness and a bloated state", Bolsonaro, 63, said in an address to the nation made after he donned the presidential sash.

In his inauguration speech before Brazil's Congress, Bolsonaro called for "a true national pact between society and the executive, legislative and judicial powers" to restore the lackluster economy - "without ideological bias".

Ahead of the ceremony, Bolsonaro and his wife, Michelle, traveled through the city by motorcade standing in an open-top Rolls-Royce surrounded by onlookers.

His current contract runs through the 2019 season. "I have goals to not only play next year, but beyond that", Brady said . Brady has talked about how he wants to play for a long time but he has confirmed that he will be back next season.

They were surrounded by dozens of guards on horses and plain-clothes bodyguards who ran beside the auto.

Brasilia was under tight security, with 3,000 police patrolling the event.

As thousands of supporters, many with the Brazilian flag draped around their shoulders, chanted "the captain has arrived!", Bolsonaro launched into a fiery speech. The increased security came at the request of the incoming president, who was stabbed in the stomach during a campaign rally in September.

Journalists attending the inauguration complained about their treatment after they were required to arrive at the event seven hours early. "As a clear sign of that diplomatic shift, Bolsonaro plans to move the Brazilian embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, breaking with Brazil's traditional support for a two-state solution to the Palestinian issue". But Bolsonaro backtracked and revoked a pledge to quit the Paris climate accord, which Mr. Trump withdrew the USA from in 2017.

Netanyahu on Tuesday ended a historic five-day trip to Brazil, the first for a sitting Israeli prime minister. Leftist president such as Nicolas Maduro of Venezuela, Daniel Ortega of Nicaragua and Miguel Diaz-Canel of Cuba - who Bolsonaro has deemed dictators - were not invited.
