Netanyahu arrived in Brazil last week to attend the inauguration of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and hold meetings with other South American leaders.

On Friday, Bolsonaro awarded Netanyahu the National Order of the Southern Cross, the most prestigious medal Brazil awards foreign dignitaries.

"When the president of Brazil gave me the highest honor that Brazil grants foreign leaders, I accepted it on your behalf," Netanyahu said in a Hebrew-language message to Israelis posted on his Twitter account.
