"It is very unfortunate that Brazil has joined this negative alliance against worldwide law", she said, referring to a small number of countries supporting the United States decision, which sparked fury among Palestinians.

But Palestinian official Hanan Ashrawi told AFP news agency such "provocative and illegal steps. will only destabilise security and stability in the region".

The move will make Brazil the most prominent country after the United States to declare Jerusalem as Israel's capital, after Donald Trump moved the US embassy earlier this year.

Brazilian far-right president-elect Jair Bolsonaro said there was no point maintaining diplomatic relations with Cuba because it trampled on human rights and there was no business to be done with the communist-run island. These are considered illegal under worldwide law, though Israel disputes this.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hailed the move as "historic".

Palestinians say that moving the embassy would prejudge one of the most sensitive issues in the conflict - the status of Jerusalem - and undermine the US' status as an honest mediator.

Bolsonaro has outraged many with his derogatory comments against women, gay people and blacks, and his support for the torture used by Brazil's brutal military regime which ruled from 1964 to 1985.

Israel occupied Jerusalem al-Quds in 1967 in a move never recognized by the worldwide community.

The Palestinians, however, see occupied East Jerusalem as the capital of their future state.

The embassy was officially transferred on May 14, with Guatemala and Paraguay following suit, though the latter announced last month it was returning its embassy to Tel Aviv.

On December 21 a year ago, the United Nations General Assembly overwhelmingly voted in favor of a resolution that calls on the U.S. to withdraw its controversial policy shift.

It was the first time since being elected on Sunday that Mr Bolsonaro referred to his plan to move the embassy.

Israel's crackdown in Gaza left over 60 protesters dead in the impoverished coastal enclave on that day alone.

Recall that in December, 2017, President Donald Trump of the United States of America recognized Jerusalem as the Israeli capital.
