“The President of Guatemala gives orders to move the embassy to Jerusalem

The President of Guatemala Jimmy Morales announced on Sunday that his country plans to move its embassy to Jerusalem, making him the first head of state to support U.S. President Donald Trump’s controversial stance on the holy city [1].

Morales wrote on his Facebook account after speaking to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that ‘one of the most relevant topics [that they spoke about] was returning the Guatemalan embassy to Jerusalem’ from Tel Aviv, where it is currently located.

He writes: ‘I inform you that I have given instructions to the Chancellor [Foreign Minister] to initiate the process.’”
