After US, heres what Guatemala decided on ‘Israel and Jerusalem’

Yet another country after United States has come out in support of recognizing Jerusalem as Israeli capital.

This as Guatemala announced moving its embassy to Jerusalem and the announcement came President Jimmy Morales on Sunday.

Guatemalan President wrote to the people of his country on Facebook page that “one of the most important topics was the return of Guatemala’s embassy to Jerusalem,” from Tel Aviv where it is currently located.

“For this reason I am informing you that I have given instructions to the foreign ministry that it start the necessary respective coordination to make this happen,” Morales wrote.

Incidentally, the Guatemala’s leader made the announcement on Christmas Eve, and three days after two-thirds of UN member states rejected Trump’s decision to have the United States recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

In all, 128 nations voted to maintain the international consensus that Jerusalem’s status can only be decided through peace negotiations between Israelis and Palestinians.

It is also being pointed out that Morales, like Trump, was a television entertainer with no real political experience before becoming president of Guatemala in 2016.
