(JTA) — Honduras will recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

President Juan Orlando Hernandez will travel to Israel on Friday to inaugurate a “diplomatic office” in Jerusalem, the French news agency AFP reported Wednesday.

The Honduran Foreign Ministry said in a statement that the office in Jerusalem will be an extension of its embassy in Tel Aviv.

“For me it’s the recognition that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel,” Hernandez told reporters during the dedication of a bridge on Tuesday. “This has been much debated in the world, and I know that I will be criticized for this, but if Honduras has as its capital Tegucigalpa, and another country refuses to recognize it, it is [equivalent to] not recognizing our sovereignty.”
