> A second country has moved its embassy in Israel to Jerusalem, Guatemala. It's making the move two days after the US, recognizing the Holy City as Israel's capital, despite an international backlash.>> There's a Guatemala Street in many cities and many communities in Israel because we remember our friends, and Guatemala is our friend.
President Donald Trump's decision to move the embassy from Tel Aviv reversed decades of US policy. Guatemala was one of only a handful of nations that backed him, partly because President Jimmy Morales relies on conservative Christian supporters who wanted the move. His country's ties with Israel go back to its creation 70 years ago.
