Newsline: Suriname says will open embassy in Jerusalem

Suriname plans to open an embassy in Jerusalem though a date is not yet set, the South American country and Israel both said on Monday. (https://wsau.com/2022/05/30/suriname-says-will-open-embassy-in-jerusalem/) Just four countries – the United States, Honduras, Guatemala and Kosovo – currently have embassies in Jerusalem instead of Tel Aviv. Surinamese Foreign Minister Albert Ramdin paid a visit to Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid, Israel’s government said in a statement. “During the meeting between the two foreign ministers, the Surinamese Foreign Minister announced that his country plans to soon open an embassy in Jerusalem, the capital of Israel,” the statement said. Ramdin told Reuters he was not sure when the facility would open. “We don’t know yet. We have expressed the intention. The consultation on how and what is going to start now,” he said. Suriname appointed a non-resident ambassador to Israel, Stevanus Noordzee, in March.
