President of Hondurus to light torch on eve of Independence Day

JERUSALEM (JTA) – The president of Honduras will light a torch in Israel’s annual Independence Day ceremony on Mount Herzl.

Juan Orlando Hernandez, who was reelected for a second term in November, confirmed his attendance at the event, Culture Minister Miri Regev announced.

Hernandez will light the torch at the April 18 ceremony together with a Foreign Ministry official representing its Agency for International Development Cooperation, or MASHAV program. Hern√°ndez graduated from a MASHAV enrichment course in 1992 at the beginning of his diplomatic career.

Honduras was one of eight countries that voted in December against a United Nations General Assembly resolution rejecting the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, in response to President Donald Trump’s announcement earlier that month.
