Arab League Condemns Guatemala's Decision to Move Embassy to Jerusalem

Guatemala has confirmed it will relocate its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Wednesday thanked Morales for his support on the Jerusalem question.

A few days later, Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales announced that his government would also move its embassy to Jerusalem, making it the first country to do so after the U.S. Of his own decision, Morales said, "It is important to be among the first, but it is more important to do it right".

Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales is an Evangelical Christian and strong supporter of Israel and is expected to move his country's embassy after the USA moves theirs.

Morales said that Guatemala will move its embassy to Jerusalem two days after the United States makes the move, coinciding with the 70 anniversary of Israel's independence.

"This decision strongly evidences Guatemala's continued support and solidarity with the people of Israel", Morales told AIPAC.


Palestinians have been angered by Trump's decision, which went against the vocal opposition of Arab leaders as it seeks to change the status of the contested city.

Israel claims all of Jerusalem as its capital, while the Palestinians see the eastern sector as the capital of their future state.

In a December 2017 the U.N. General Assembly voted on a resolution condemning Trump's decision. The United States and Guatemala successively recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital in December.

There had always been worldwide consensus that the city's status should be settled as part of a two-state peace deal between Israel and the Palestinians.

The Guatemalan ambassador was on the streets of occupied Jerusalem Monday to look at properties for when it joins the United States in moving its embassy there, a move Palestinians said was illegal and could kill any chance of peace.

At AIPAC today, Guatemalan president Jimmy Morales announced that this historic move would be completed in May of this year.
