BRASILIA (Reuters) – Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and Chinese President Xi Jinping on Wednesday remarked on what they called strong and growing bilateral relations between their countries in a brief public ceremony in Brasilia.

Their comments underscored how far diplomatic relations have come since Bolsonaro’s repeated bashing of China on the campaign trail last year, which sparked concerns that he could disrupt one of the world’s biggest trading partnerships.
