Guatemala's president told the American "Israeli" Public Affairs Committee [AIPAC] Policy Conference on Sunday night that he will move his country's embassy to the occupied city of al-Quds in May, and that the relocation will take place two days after the United States moves its embassy to the holy city, to coincide with the 70th anniversary of the so-called establishment of the Zionist entity.
"In May of this year, we will celebrate "Israel's" 70th anniversary, and under my instructions two days after the US will move its embassy, Guatemala will return and permanently move its embassy to [al-Quds] ‘Jerusalem'," President Jimmy Morales told a crowd of more than 18,000 gathered in the nation's capital for the annual confab.
"This decision strongly evidences Guatemala's continued support of ‘Israel'," he went on. "And we are sure that many other countries will follow in our steps."
In 1959, Guatemala was the first country to open its embassy in the occupied city of al-Quds, but later moved it to Tel Aviv following international rejection of Zionist claims to East al-Quds.
Meanwhile, US President Donald Trump bucked decades of US foreign policy by formally recognizing the occupied city as the Zionist entity's so-called capital last December and setting in motion plans to move the US embassy there from Tel Aviv.
