Following in the footsteps of President Trump, Guatemala’s leader announces his country will also move its embassy to Jerusalem.
Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales took to Twitter Sunday and saids he made the decision after speaking with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
He also instructed the country’s foreign ministry to move its embassy from its current location in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Guatemala was one of only a few United Nations member countries to vote against a resolution denouncing the U.S. decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
