 The United States has not yet moved Guatemala to take the lead into the new embassy in Jerusalem.


Overseas network May 2 December 6, 2017, the United States President Trump announced the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, and decided to relocate the embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Today (2), Guatemala, a following suit who supported the United States, preempted the new embassy site in Jerusalem, and raised the national flag outside the pavilion. According to the Russian website today, the Embassy of Guatemalas new relocation is scheduled to open in May 16th, and it is still half a month from the opening ceremony, and the national flag of Guatemala has been raised outside the new embassy. Guatemala raised the national flag before the opening ceremony of the embassy, which obviously triggered a lot of controversy, but the Prime Minister of Israel welcomed this. It is understood that Guatemala staff on Monday (1) moved from Tel Aviv to the new embassy site in Jerusalem. This Latin American country seems to be particularly supportive of Trumps decision. As soon as Trump announced that Jerusalem was the capital of Israel in December last year, the president of Guatemala, Jimmy Morales, was immediately endorsed, and Guatemala was the first country to announce the relocation of the embassy. As for the relocation of the Embassy of the United States to Jerusalem, US media has rarely moved, but Trump has revealed that he is likely to go to Israel to take part in the ribbon cutting ceremony in the new pavilion. He also revealed that he finally decided to grant 300 thousand to 400 thousand dollars for the relocation of the embassy.

The international community generally does not recognize Israels sovereignty over Jerusalem, and many countries with Israeli diplomatic relations have located their embassies in Tel Aviv rather than Jerusalem. However, in December 6, 2017, Trump, in his speech at the White House, announced that the United States recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and would relocate its embassy in Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Afterwards, 9 countries declared their support for Trumps move. However, the move was universally opposed by the international community and was also regarded as playing with fire. The other side believes that the US move will not only encourage extremism and violence but also bring chaos to the Middle East situation.
