Hungary is reportedly planning to move the location of its embassy to the Israeli Occupation over to the occupied city of Jerusalem instead of Tel Aviv, next month, according to Jewish media outlets.

The reports quoted senior officials in the Hungarian Ministry of Foreign Affairs as saying that the matter was settled a few days ago during extensive talks between the Israeli Occupation Foreign Minister, Eli Cohen, and the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Hungary, Péter Szijjártó.

This step would make Hungary the first European Union member state to open an embassy in Jerusalem, which is something that the EU opposes.
