Honduras and the Republic of Nauru may be two different countries on two different sides of the globe, but one thing they have in common is they both recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez announced he will be in Jerusalem on Sunday to inaugurate a “diplomatic office” in Jerusalem to honor the city as the capital of Israel.
The diplomatic office in Jerusalem with be an extension of Honduras’ embassy in Tel Aviv.
Sarah Netanyahu, the wife of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, said Tuesday that she asked Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales and his wife, Patricia, to help Honduras move its embassy to Jerusalem. To date, the United States and Guatemala are the only countries to officially move their embassies to Jerusalem.
“I asked them to work with Honduras to move their embassy to Jerusalem,” Netanyahu said, as reported by The Jerusalem Post. “This is a step on the way to moving their embassy” to Jerusalem.
Hernandez pledged in March to open a diplomatic office in Jerusalem and said he recognized the holy city as the capital of the Jewish state.
