Guatemala plans to move its embassy in Tel Aviv to the occupied al-Qusd ('Jerusalem'), Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales said on his official Facebook account on Sunday.

 

Morales said he had spoken to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and instructed Guatemala's foreign ministry to initiate the process to make it possible.

 

Guatemala, the United States, Israel and six smaller nations voted against a United Nations resolution to condemn US President Donald Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The UN General Assembly vote on Thursday was overwhelming, with 128 in support and 35 abstentions. Another 21 countries did not participate in the vote.

 

The Central American nation is the first country to announce it would move its embassy from Tel Aviv to Quds since Trump issued his announcement December 6.
