Israel in touch with '10 countries' over embassy moves: deputy

US may recognize Israel as Jewish state Hamas chief

"Other countries will recognize Jerusalem and announce the relocation of their embassies". "So far we have only seen the beginning", she said.

In November 2016, Morales was welcomed in Israel by government officials including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, President Reuven Rivlin and the Knesset speaker, Yuli Edelstein, all of who thanked Guatemala for its early support of Israel.

The country became the first to follow the United States in this regard after the US President Donald Trump recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital.

The Palestinians have declared the Guatemalan decision, "a shameful and illegal act that goes totally against the wishes of church leaders in Jerusalem".

Kızılırmak said they had no knowledge of when and why they would be deported, as Turkey's Embassy to Tel Aviv and Consulate to Jerusalem are monitoring the issue.

Recognising Jerusalem as Israel's capital puts the USA out of step with the rest of the world, and legitimises Israeli settlement-building in the east - considered illegal under global law.


Querido pueblo de Guatemala, hoy he conversado con el Primer Ministro de Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu.

Despite an worldwide backlash, President Donald Trump recently recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, The Hill noted.

Guatemala and Israel were joined by Honduras, the Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru, Palau and Togo in voting with the United States and opposing the measure.

The Trump administration says recognizing Jerusalem as the Israeli capital is a "reflection of reality" and that the physical location of the embassy has no bearing on the US commitment to a two-state solution in the Middle East.

The Palestinians and much of the worldwide community have said the status of Jerusalem is to be settled as part of peace negotiations.

Several mainly Latin American countries had diplomatic missions in Jerusalem until a 1980 UN Security Council resolution condemning Israel's attempt to alter the "character and status" of the city, saying it was a barrier to peace.
