Two small and distant countries now have one thing in common as they both recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernandez announced he will be in Jerusalem on Sunday to inaugurate a "diplomatic office" in Jerusalem to honour the city as the capital of Israel reports the Christian Broadcasting Network.

While Hernandez made the announcement, on the other side of the globe, a tiny country in Micronesia called Nauru also announced its decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

Nauru is a majority Christian country, with a population of 13,000 people, northeast of Australia.

"The mission of Nauru has the honour to convey the decisions of the Government of the Republic of Nauru to formally recognize the City of Jerusalem as the Capital City of the State of Israel," says the letter the island country sent to the United Nations.

Before the announcement from Honduras and the Republic of Nauru, the United States and Guatemala are the only countries to officially move their embassies to Jerusalem.
