Regardless of stiff Israeli objection, Brazil gets ready to host Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad during his upcoming trip to Latin America.
Israeli officials reacted with shock and fury after Brazilian authorities invited President Ahmadinejad for talks in Brasilia, summoning the country's ambassador to Israel, Pedro Motta Pinto Coelho, to give an explanation.
Much to Israel's dismay, Brazilian Foreign Minister, Celso Amorim, brushed aside the concern and asserted that the planned visit would go ahead as schedule.
"If we stop taking visitors because certain countries disagree with them, we would not be able to accept hardly anyone," Amorim was quoted as saying.source
