罗马尼亚和洪都拉斯承诺耶路撒冷大使馆搬迁

Speaking at AIPAC, Romania’s prime minister said she will move her country’s embassy to Jerusalem. Honduras’ president says his country will set up a diplomatic mission in the city.

Romanian Prime Minister Viorica Dancila says that her country intends to move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. She was speaking on Sunday at the AIPAC pro-Israel lobby annual policy conference in Washington.

She is said to have made this pledge before, but reportedly the Romanian president has stood in the way of such a move. Romania currently serves in the rotating position of president of the European Union Council.

A Romanian move of its embassy to Jerusalem would come on the heels of last year’s opening of the U.S. Embassy in Jerusalem.

Dancila also unveiled a plan to allow those who were forced out of Romania to apply for citizenship. Romania will also begin the process of Holocaust reparations.

“We are telling you about granting special compensations and pensions for Romanian Holocaust survivors,” she said.

Additionally, there will be worldwide access to archives from the Holocaust “to make sure history is preserved.”

Honduras diplomatic mission
Also at the AIPAC event, Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández Alvarado said that his country would immediately set up a diplomatic mission in Jerusalem, serving as a branch of the embassy currently located in Rishon LeZion, a city south of Tel Aviv.

The diplomatic mission is meant as an interim step as Honduras reached an agreement with the U.S. and Israel to work on the opening of an embassy in the city.

“Today, I announced that we are going to take the first step. I already communicated to the government of Israel that we are ready to open a diplomatic mission in Jerusalem in Israel,” Hernandez said at a press conference.

Hernandez said that he understands the move will be opposed in Honduras by what he called “radical groups.” But he believes it is the right thing to do.

A year ago, Honduras sided with Israel against a U.N. General Assembly resolution that condemned President Donald Trump for recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s eternal capital. “We vote with Israel because it’s the right thing to do,” Hernandez said.

“I had the opportunity to have a fellowship in Israel,” Hernandez said. “It was life-changing.”

Hernandez added that Israel has been a major factor in Honduras’ fight against crime. When he became president in 2014, the country faced the highest homicide rate in the world.

But over the last five years, that number has significantly decreased. President Hernandez said that is partly because of Israel.
“Thanks to the help of Israel and the United States,” he said, “We stated that nobody is above the law.”

Other countries have also promised to move their embassies to Israel’s capital.

Brazil’s president said that it’s just a matter of time until his country’s Embassy moves to Jerusalem. But recent reports indicated that he is facing resistance from the “old guard” within the Brazilian establishment and the Arab world.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will address the AIPAC conference on Tuesday after meeting with President Donald Trump on Monday.

Netanyahu has stressed his close relationship with Trump, citing the U.S. withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal, the move of the American Embassy to Jerusalem, and most recently, the president’s declaration of recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the Golan Heights, which is expected to become official during the prime minister’s current visit to the U.S.

罗马尼亚总理在AIPAC发表讲话说她将把她的国家大使馆迁到耶路撒冷。洪都拉斯总统表示,他的国家将在该市设立外交使团。

罗马尼亚总理维西卡·丹西拉说,她的国家打算将其驻以色列大使馆迁往耶路撒冷。她周日在华盛顿举行的AIPAC亲以色列游说年度政策会议上发表讲话。

据说她之前做过这样的承诺,但据报道,罗马尼亚总统阻碍了这一举动。罗马尼亚目前担任欧盟理事会主席。
在去年美国驻耶路撒冷大使馆开放之后,罗马尼亚将其大使馆搬到耶路撒冷。

丹西拉还公布了一项计划,允许那些被迫离开罗马尼亚的人申请公民身份。罗马尼亚还将开始大屠杀赔偿进程。

“我们正在告诉你们为罗马尼亚大屠杀幸存者提供特殊补偿和养老金,”她说。

此外,全世界都可以从大屠杀中获取档案,“以确保保存历史”。
洪都拉斯外交使团
同样在AIPAC活动中,洪都拉斯总统胡安·奥兰多·埃尔南德斯·阿尔瓦拉多说,他的国家将立即在耶路撒冷设立一个外交使团,作为目前位于特拉维夫以南城市里雄莱锡安的大使馆的一个分支。

外交使团意味着临时步骤,洪都拉斯与美国和以色列达成协议,开始在该市开设大使馆。

“今天,我宣布我们将迈出第一步。我已经告知以色列政府,我们准备在以色列耶路撒冷开展外交使命,“埃尔南德斯在新闻发布会上说。

埃尔南德斯说,他理解这一行动将在洪都拉斯遭到他所谓的“激进团体”的反对。但他认为这是正确的做法。
一年前,洪都拉斯支持以色列反对联合国大会决议,该决议谴责唐纳德特朗普总统承认耶路撒冷是以色列永恒的首都。 “我们与以色列一起投票,因为这是正确的做法,”埃尔南德斯说。

“我有机会在以色列获得团契,”埃尔南德斯说。 “这改变了生活。”

埃尔南德斯补充说,以色列是洪都拉斯打击犯罪的主要因素。当他在2014年成为总统时,该国面临着世界上最高的凶杀率。

但在过去五年中,这个数字已显着下降。埃尔南德斯总统说,这部分是因为以色列。

“感谢以色列和美国的帮助,”他说,“我们说没有人凌驾于法律之上。”

其他国家也承诺将其大使馆迁至以色列首都。

巴西总统说,他的国家大使馆搬到耶路撒冷只是时间问题。但最近的报道表明,他正面临巴西建立和阿拉伯世界内“老卫兵”的抵抗。

总理本杰明·内塔尼亚胡将于星期二在与唐纳德·特朗普总统会晤后于星期二在AIPAC会议上发表讲话。

内塔尼亚胡强调他与特朗普的密切关系,理由是美国退出伊朗核协议,美国大使馆迁往耶路撒冷,以及最近,总统宣布承认以色列对戈兰高地的主权,该预计将成为官方在总理目前访问美国期间
