Brazil: Brazil ignores Israel's protest over Ahmadinejad visit

Iran's president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad will arrive in Brasilia Wednesday despite Israel's protests, Brazil's Foreign Minister Celso Amorim has said.

The Foreign Ministry opposes the planned visit by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to Brazil, and summoned their ambassador to Israel, Pedro Motta Pinto Coelho, to register a protest.

"If we stop taking visitors because certain countries disagree with them, we would not be able to accept hardly anyone," O Globo quoted Amorim as saying.
