Suriname plans to open embassy in Jerusalem

Suriname plans to open an embassy in Jerusalem though a date is not yet set.

Surinamese Foreign Minister Albert Ramdin paid a visit to Israeli Foreign Minister Yair Lapid, Israel’s government said in a statement.

“During the meeting between the two foreign ministers, the Surinamese Foreign Minister announced that his country plans to soon open an embassy in Jerusalem, the capital of Israel,” the statement said.

Suriname appointed a non-resident ambassador to Israel, Stevanus Noordzee, in March 2022.

At the time, the government said it expected relations with Israel to deepen with the appointment. Suriname has a small Jewish community.
