Arab League Suspends Ties With Guatemala Over Embassy Relocation to Jerusalem

Arab League Suspends Ties With Guatemala
The League of Arab States (LAS) revoked its cooperation agreement with Guatemala and suspended all bilateral ties after Guatemala relocated its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the LAS press service said on Wednesday.


"In accordance with the guidelines of LAS Secretary General Ahmed Aboul Gheit, the organization’s Secretariat revoked the Memorandum of Understanding with the Guatemalan Foreign Ministry, signed in 2013, and informed the Guatemalan side that cooperation in all fields would be suspended due to the country’s stance on the Jerusalem problem," the statement read.

On Thursday, the LAS announced its intention to work out a plan of action to counteract the recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital by the United States or any other nation. The union is set to develop political, judicial and economic measures to prevent similar steps from being taken in the future.
