Newsline: Guatemala embassy in Israel opens in Jerusalem

Guatemala opened its new embassy to Israel in Jerusalem ahead of its official inauguration later this month. The embassy was moved to the Israeli Malha Technology Park and the Guatemalan flag was raised there. The official opening ceremony will take place two days after the US embassy is inaugurated in the city on 14 May. “I was moved to see the flag of Guatemala waving in Jerusalem in advance of the opening of the Guatemalan embassy later this month,” Haaretz reported Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu saying. After announcing his country’s move to transfer its embassy to Jerusalem in March, Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales told the American Israel Public Affairs Committee’s annual policy conference: “I would like to thank [US] President Trump for leading the way. His courageous decision has encouraged us to do what is right.”
