The Honduran president announced this week that his country would be opening its embassy in Jerusalem in June; Hernandez: We are going to formalize what we have already carried out step by step.
Many months after an announcement to open embassies in each other’s country in the fall of 2020, Israel and Honduras are now making their final steps towards fulfilling that commitment. According to Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez, his country will officially open its embassy in Jerusalem in June, uprooting its current location in Tel Aviv.
Israel, in return, intends to open a diplomatic office in Tegucigalpa.
Hernandez said this week, “We are going to formalize what we have already carried out step by step, which is the installation of our embassy in Jerusalem.” He also stated that he believed the opening of the embassy “will empower us on the agricultural side, in the field of innovation and in the field of tourism.”
