This came after Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales announced the relocation of his country’s embassy to Jerusalem.

In response, Netanyahu praised the move, saying, “God bless you, my friend.”

Guatemala was one of two Central American countries, alongside neighbouring Honduras, to vote against the resolution.

Honduras is likely to be next country to follow the move by Guatemala.

On December 21, the UN General Assembly approved a resolution that rejects Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel after 128 member states voted in favour of the move.

However, nine countries voted against the resolution and 35 countries abstained.

The resolution condemns both US recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel as well as Washington’s decision to move its embassy to the city.
