Honduras to move its Israel embassy to Jerusalem by end of year

President Juan Hernandez also announces that Israel will open a diplomatic office in Honduran capital, Tegucigalpa.

Honduras hopes to relocate its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem before the end of the year, putting an end to its policy of neutrality – a move likely to further anger the Palestinians.

“I have just talked to Prime Minister Netanyahu to strengthen our strategic alliance, we spoke to arrange the opening of the embassies in Tegucigalpa and Jerusalem, respectively,” Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez posted on Twitter on Sunday.

“We hope to take this historic step before the end of the year, as long as the pandemic allows it.”

Netanyahu said the intention was to open and inaugurate the embassies before the end of the year. Israel currently has no embassy in Honduras but opened a diplomatic office there last month.
