Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández meets with Prime Minister Naftali Bennett at his office in Jerusalem before attending the dedication of the Honduran Embassy in the capital.

“You will be recorded in the pages of history as having done a brave and correct deed for the State of Israel,” Bennett tells Hernández.”

In September 2020, Hernández and then-prime minister Netanyahu agreed to open reciprocal embassies in each other’s capitals by the end of the year, pending the pandemic.

The new embassy will be the fourth established in Jerusalem, after those of the United States, Guatemala and Kosovo.
