The Cultural Attaché of the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires, Yiftah Curiel, said today that “we are checking the possibility” that the Israeli President Shimon Peres and the Chancellor Avigdor Liberman may travel to South America.
Nevertheless, the official warned that “under no circumstances can we confirm”, that the President and the Minister of Foreign Affairs are planning to travel to Brazil in the coming months.
Curiel’s comments were released after the Brazilian Chancellor Celso Amorim announced yesterday that Liberman will visit the country in July.
“I’ve set a date, in July, so that Liberman can come to Brazil”, informed Amorim during a session in the Chamber of Deputies.
Accoriding to Amorim, the Israeli President Shimon Peres “also expressed his desire of coming to Brazil.”
