Brazilian president says US military base may be established in Brazil

Brasília, Brazil- Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro said on Thursday he was considering ending the Labor Court, where labor disputes are now being judged, considering there is an "excess of rights" that benefit workers.

During the interview, the President also said that he intends to send to Congress a proposal to change the system of reforms to establish a minimum retirement age of 62 years for men and 57 years for women, compared to 60 and 55 years, respectively, current legislation.

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro did not rule out that he may discuss with Washington the establishment of a U.S. military base on Brazilian territory, he said in an interview with the TV channel SBT on Thursday.

"Israel is a sovereign state and we must respect it", Bolsonaro told Brazi's SBT.
