Venezuelan refugees settle in Colombia

Eighty percent of Venezuelan immigrants who arrive in Colombia remain in the country, an analyst reveals.

Political scientist and member of the Venezuelan Observatory, Ronal Rodríguez has told Panampost that there are 1.4 million Venezuelans in Colombia who are slowly entering the economy. 

The expert has pointed out that analysts agree that this could have a good effect on Colombia's gross domestic product, given that many of them are very well-qualified and highly trained young people. 

Almost 4.5 million Venezuelans have left the South American country since the humanitarian crisis unfolds under the socialist regime of Nicolás Maduro, according to the Coordination Platform for Refugees and Migrants from Venezuela. 

Honduras recognizes Jerusalem as Israel's capital

It has been confirmed that Honduras will be opening a diplomatic office in Jerusalem. 

Honduran President Juan Hernandez will travel to Israel on Sept. 1st to open a "diplomatic office" in the city. 

The president assures that the office will be an extension of his embassy in Tel Aviv and affirms that this means the official recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel by Honduras. 

This decision follows the footsteps of President Donald Trump, who officially recognized the emblematic city as Israel's capital and moved the U.S. embassy there in May. 

Guatemala also has moved its main diplomatic office to Jerusalem that same month.
