Honduras opened its embassy in Jerusalem Thursday, June 24, becoming the fourth country to follow the U.S. move under former President Donald Trump to move its embassy from Tel Aviv. New Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett and Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez were both present for the historic event.

“Mr. President, you are a true friend of Israel,” Bennett told Hernandez ahead of the inauguration ceremony at the Technological Park in the Malha neighborhood of Jerusalem, per The Times of Israel. “The Jewish people have a long memory, and you will be recorded in the pages of history as having done a brave and justified deed for the State of Israel.”

“We hope to continue building the solid relationship between our two countries,” Hernandez tweeted after the event, referring to Jerusalem as “the eternal capital of Israel.”

Bennett in turn thanked Hernandez for his strong international support of Israel.
