Guatemala Flies Its Flag over New Embassy Building in Occupied Al-Quds
The new Guatemalan embassy in the "Israeli"-occupied entity raised its national flag over the new building in the occupied Palestinian holy city of al-Quds, which is officially slated to open its doors for business on May 16, just two days after the US plans to relocate its embassy from Tel Aviv.
Before the flag was raised, the Latin American country moved its staff from Tel Aviv to its new location at the Malkha Technology Park in occupied al-Quds on Monday. The display of the Guatemalan national symbol against the al-Quds skyline was immediately welcomed by Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
"I was moved to see the flag of Guatemala waving in [al-Quds] in advance of the opening of the Guatemalan embassy later this month. Dear friends, welcome back to our eternal capital," Netanyahu commented.
Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales first announced the country's decision to relocate its embassy to al-Quds in December, shortly after US President Donald Trump's recognition of occupied al-Quds as the so-called capital of the Zionist entity.
In March, Morales once again confirmed that Guatemala's embassy in al-Quds will open immediately after the US makes its move.
Since December, the "Israeli" occupation regime has been urging other countries to follow Washington's example to recognize al-Quds as the "Israeli" so-called ‘capital.'
Besides the US and Guatemala, Romania has also announced its intention to move its embassy.
