"Brazil shares with Jordan a political vision of peace and dialogue and respects the role played by the Kingdom as the custodian of the Cristian and Muslim holy sites in Jerusalem and acknowledges the Kingdom as a key factor to moderate and to stabilize the Middle East, a part of the world to which Brazil is deeply linked," Amaral said.

"About 7% of the Brazilian population has Arab origin. I´m talking about 12 million people, " he said, continuing" The Arab influence on Brazil is so strong and so incorporated that one cannot understand the Brazilian culture, the Brazilian identity, without considering the intense presence of Arab elements in our DNA."
