Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez will travel to Yerushalayim to inaugurate a “diplomatic office” in the city on Sept. 1, the Honduran government said in a statement on Tuesday.
The office represents an extension of Honduras’s embassy in the country, the Honduran government said.
Hernandez said in March that he would open a trade office in Yerushalayim. It was not immediately clear how the diplomatic office would be related to a trade office.
“For me it’s the recognition that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel,” Hernandez said on Tuesday.
