“There is a negotiation, discussions with the Honduran authorities, and for the moment no decision has been made,” Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahson told the publication.

Reportedly, in return for relocating its embassy, Honduras has asked Israel to upgrade its consulate in Tegucigalpa to an embassy, in addition to assist on issues such as cyber security, water management and crime prevention.

Currently, the United States and Guatemala have their embassies in Jerusalem. Paraguay relocated its embassy to the Israeli capital in May only to move it back to Tel Aviv after President Mario Abdo Benítez reversed his predecessor’s decision in September.
