Following the lead of other countries (including the U.S.), Honduras intends to open its Israel embassy in Jerusalem:

Honduras will be moving ahead with plans to open its Israel embassy in Jerusalem, and Israel is in talks to open its Honduran embassy in Tegucigalpa, following a meeting between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez and U.S. Secretary Mike Pompeo on Tuesday.

The meeting occurred on the sidelines of the inauguration of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro.

According to reports, Israel will upgrade its Honduran consulate to a full-fledged embassy and provide Honduras help on cyber security, water and agriculture technology, and law-enforcement assistance. Israel will also open its market to Honduran coffee imports.
