Paraguay will move its embassy in Israel to Yerushalayim later this month, the Israeli foreign ministry said on Monday, following the United States and Guatemala.

“Paraguay President Horacio Cartes plans to come to Israel by the end of the month to open an embassy in Jerusalem,” Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon said in a statement.

However, Paraguay’s foreign ministry said such a decision has not yet been made.
