Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met Tuesday in Brazil with Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez and U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo where they discussed advancing the opening of the two embassies in Jerusalem and Honduras.
They and other leaders were in Brasilia for the inauguration of President Jair Bolsonaro.
The issue of opening the Honduran embassy in Jerusalem was raised during Sara Netanyahu’s recent visit to Guatemala during a lunch hosted by Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales and his wife.
At that time, Morales and Netanyahu called the Honduran president and suggested that he meet with Prime Minister Netanyahu in Brazil in order to advance the transfer of the Honduran embassy to Jerusalem.
Prime Minister Netanyahu also met separately with Honduran President Hernandez after their meeting together with Pompeo.
