Guatemala to move embassy to Jerusalem

The fallout from President Trump’s Jerusalem announcement continues with Guatemalen President Jimmy Morales making the following statement on his official Facebook page two hours ago:

“Dear people of Guatemala, today I spoke with the prime minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu. We are talking about the excellent relations that we have had as nations since Guatemala supported the creation of the state of Israel.

One of the most important topics was the return of the embassy of Guatemala to Jerusalem.

So I inform you that I have instructed the chancellor to initiate the respective coordination so that it may be.

God bless you.”

The leader of Romania’s ruling Social Democratic Party, Liviu Dragnea, has also appeared to take a positive view of moving the Romanian embassy to Jerusalem being quoted has saying his country should “seriously consider” moving the Romanian embassy in Israel to Jerusalem for practical reasons.

“All Israel’s central institutions are in Jerusalem, and ambassadors and embassy staff commute from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem,” Dragnea said.
