Paraguayan President Santiago Peña is to attend the official reopening ceremony in Jerusalem, scheduled to take place by the end of the year.
In late April, Czech President Miloš Zeman announced a ‘three stage’ plan to relocate the country’s embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, which included the reopening of the consulate.
The White House said it hopes to welcome ‘many more of our friends and allies in Jerusalem, the capital of Israel.’
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the US would impose ‘the strongest sanctions in history’ on Iran if it failed to change course.
Paraguayan President Cartes said that moving the embassy ‘expresses the sincere friendship and brave solidarity between Paraguay and Israel.’
‘I have to give thanks to our tenacious president, Donald J. Trump. As I always say about him, ‘promise made, promise kept,’’ said Paula White, a pastor and televangelist.
Days after the historic opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem, US officials and Members of Knesset celebrate Guatemala and ‘hand of God.’
With the Guatemalan flag already hoisted at the location of its new embassy in Jerusalem, there is a palpable mood of excitement among Israeli officials to see other countries doing the same very soon.
The countries have conditioned their moves on an official visit to their countries by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
“We are happy to strengthen the ties between the two countries and I hope that your visit here will further improve the good relations,” Rivlin told his Paraguayan counterpart.
