CAIRO (AP) — The Arab League says it will no longer cooperate on any level with Guatemala because of the country’s decision to move its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
The Cairo-based organization says Wednesday it has abandoned a memorandum of understanding signed in 2013 and has severed relations with the Central American country.
Guatemala moved its embassy to Jerusalem earlier this month, following the inauguration of the U.S. Embassy in disputed Jerusalem.
Guatemala was the first country to put its embassy in Jerusalem, in 1956. It moved the facility 24 years later to Tel Aviv, after the Israeli parliament declared Jerusalem its eternal and indivisible capital in contravention of a United Nations resolution.
