As reported in today's Stand for Israel Daily Dispatch, a number of countries are planning to follow the American lead and move their embassies to Jerusalem. Our friends at JNS report that Guatemala has announced its intentions to move its embassy from Tel Aviv to the Holy City:
Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales on Monday announced that the Central American nation will relocate its Tel Aviv embassy to Jerusalem, following America’s lead.
Morales’s announcement of the policy change came in a Facebook post after a conversation with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
“Dear citizens of Guatemala, I have spoken with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu today. We spoke about the excellent relations our countries have enjoyed since we supported Israel's creation,” wrote Morales. “One of the important topics broached were transferring the Guatemalan Embassy to Jerusalem, and I hereby announce I have instructed the embassy’s staff to plan such a move. May God bless you.”
“Thank you Guatemala for your important decision to move your Embassy to Jerusalem!” wrote Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon on Twitter. “Wonderful news and true friendship!!”
