Fifth embassy in Jerusalem. The President of Paraguay will inaugurate his country's embassy in Jerusalem later this year. Foreign Minister Eli Cohen met with President Santiago Peña just hours after his assumption of office. Israel will reopen its embassy in Asunción, the capital of Paraguay, after it was closed due to budget cuts.

Foreign Minister Eli Cohen met yesterday evening (Tuesday) with the newly inaugurated President of Paraguay, Santiago Peña, just hours after the festive inauguration ceremony. Cohen and Peña decided that Paraguay will move its embassy to Jerusalem, the capital of Israel, later this year, and that Israel will reestablish its embassy in Asunción, the capital of Paraguay. The Foreign Minister invited President Peña to come to Israel for the embassy's inauguration in Jerusalem, and the President responded that he intends to visit the country later this year for the opening of the embassy in Jerusalem.

Foreign Minister Eli Cohen: "We continue to strengthen Jerusalem's international status as the eternal capital of the State of Israel. I have invited the President of Paraguay, Santiago Peña, to come to Israel for an official visit later this year and to inaugurate Paraguay's embassy in Jerusalem, the capital of Israel. The opening of the Paraguayan embassy in Jerusalem and the Israeli embassy in Asunción will enhance Israel's regional and international standing and strengthen the important ties between the countries. We will continue to nurture and reinforce the significant historical connection with the Latin American countries that have stood by the side of the State of Israel and the Jewish people."
