jerusalem - Guatemala has opened its embassy in Jerusalem after the United States. That happened Wednesday in the presence of Guatemala's president Jimmy Morales and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Netanyahu spoke at the ceremony about the continued support of Guatemala to Israel. 'It is no coincidence that Guatemala opens its embassy as one of the first in Jerusalem. You were the second country to recognize the sovereignty of Israel. '

The decision by the United States to relocate their embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem caused a great deal of controversy in the international community. President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, while Palestinians see East Jerusalem as the capital of a future Palestinian state.
