Press Statement

Minister of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates   

25 December 2017  

Guatemala's embassy move to Jerusalem is a shameless act of lawlessness 


The State of Palestine condemns the announcement by Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales about his country’s decision to move their embassy to Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. President Morales dragged his country to the wrong side of history by committing a flagrant violation of international law as well as relevant United Nations Security Council and General Assembly resolutions, including most recently resolution ES10/19. This announcement is also a brazen act of disrespect and disregard to the collective positions of international alliances and groups Guatemala is part of, including the Non-aligned Movement.
