Apparently as reward for their support of the United States during a United Nations vote on Jerusalem, U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley will visit Honduras and Guatemala next week, her office announced Friday.
The trip to two of the region’s most troubled countries follows a lopsided U.N. General Assembly vote in December to condemn President Trump’s decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and to move the U.S. Embassy to the disputed city.
“We are grateful to these two countries for standing with us at the U.N. when many others did not,” a spokesman for the U.S. mission at the U.N. said Friday. “At the same time, we have many other shared interests to discuss, including narcotics, gangs, migration, and the crisis in Venezuela.”
