Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández was in Israel on Thursday for the inauguration of his country’s embassy in Jerusalem, following up on his pledge made last summer.
It will be the fourth foreign embassy to open in Jerusalem in recent years after the United States, Guatemala and Kosovo. Former US President Donald Trump was the catalyst in bringing this about.
Orlando will meet with Prime Minister Naftali Bennett as well as his predecessor, Benjamin Netanyahu, who was instrumental in making it happen.
