Israel Confirms Paraguay to Open Embassy in Jerusalem on May 21

JERUSALEM – The Israeli Foreign Ministry on Thursday confirmed to EFE that Paraguay will move its embassy to Jerusalem on May 21, with the president of the South American country in attendance.

Paraguayan President Horacio Cartes is expected to arrive over the weekend in Israel to head the inauguration, which would make his country the third to move its embassy to Jerusalem, following the United States and Guatemala.

Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahson told EFE that Cartes and the Paraguayan delegation will open the embassy next Monday in the same building where Guatemala opened its new embassy on Wednesday.

The embassy move is a controversial decision that goes against the resolutions of the United Nations, which in 1980 asked all countries to withdraw their diplomatic representatives from Jerusalem to protest Israel’s unilateral annexation of the eastern part of the city earlier that year, although Israel had occupied that part of the city since 1967.

Nabil Shaath, the foreign affairs adviser to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, urged foreign ministers gathered on Thursday at the Arab League summit in Cairo to sever their relations with Guatemala, Paraguay and other nations that move their embassies from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
