Greetings to New Brazilian PresidentGreetings to New Brazilian President

Iran’s Foreign Ministry congratulated Brazil's president-elect Jair Bolsonaro on winning the election, hoping for closer political and economic ties between the two countries during his term.
In a statement on Monday, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi congratulated the Brazilian government and nation on holding the presidential election successfully, Tasnim News Agency reported.
Wishing good luck for Bolsonaro, Qasemi hoped that political and economic relations between the two countries would grow under the new Brazilian government.
“Iran and Brazil have a history of 118 years of bilateral ties, which have always followed a growing, firm and stable trend,” he added.
Supporters of Bolsonaro took the streets of Rio de Janeiro on Sunday after the far-right congressman was declared winner of the presidential election by a wide margin.
Official results gave Bolsonaro a 55.2% share of the vote in Sunday's runoff, comfortably ahead of Fernando Haddad, the candidate of the center-left Workers' Party, who garnered 44.8% of the votes.
