Guatemala to Move Embassy From Tel Aviv to Jerusalem

Israel deports two Turks detained in Jerusalem

Guatemala will move its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, becoming the first nation to follow the lead of US President Donald Trump in ordering the change, the Central American country's President has announced.

"We are in contact with at least ten countries, some of them in Europe" to discuss the move, deputy foreign minister Tzipi Hotovely told public radio.

"One of the most important topics was the return of the embassy of Guatemala to Jerusalem".

"It's a shameful and illegal act that goes totally against the wishes of church leaders in Jerusalem" and of a non-binding U.N. General Assembly resolution condemning the US recognition, the Palestinian Foreign Ministry said in a statement, the French press agency, AFP, reported.

Israel called Guatemala's vote "courageous".

Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu praising the decision said, "God bless you my friend, President Morales!"


The Palestinians have declared the Guatemalan decision, "a shameful and illegal act that goes totally against the wishes of church leaders in Jerusalem".

The Trump administration says recognizing Jerusalem as the Israeli capital is a "reflection of reality" and that the physical location of the embassy has no bearing on the US commitment to a two-state solution in the Middle East. Adding that, "the state of Palestine considers this as a flagrant act of hostility against the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people and global law".

Israel seized the eastern part of Jerusalem in the 1967 Six Day War and later annexed it in a move not recognised by the worldwide community.

The resolution passed by the General Assembly declared the U.S. action on Jerusalem "null and void".

Donald Trump upended decades of United States policy with his December 6 announcement that he was recognising Jerusalem as Israel's capital. In a move never recognized by the worldwide community, it annexed the entire city in 1980, claiming it as the Jewish state's "eternal and undivided" capital.

Kızılırmak said they had no knowledge of when and why they would be deported, as Turkey's Embassy to Tel Aviv and Consulate to Jerusalem are monitoring the issue.
