Netanyahu meets with Honduran president after embassy opened in Jerusalem

Opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu, who was prime minister when the agreement with Honduras was reached last year, welcomes the opening of its embassy in Jerusalem and emphasizes his role in the event.

“I agreed to the opening of embassies with Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández a year ago and today we are seeing the fruits,” Netanyahu writes on Facebook.

“I hope that the efforts I began, to transfer embassies to Jerusalem, will not end, and other countries will move their embassies to Jerusalem, the eternal capital of the Jewish people for 3,000 years.”

Netanyahu was not at Thursday’s ceremony, but did meet with Hernández later in the day, the opposition leader’s office says.
