Guatemala inaugurated its embassy in Jerusalem, the second country to move its main diplomatic mission from Tel Aviv. The United States opened its Jerusalem embassy in the southern Jerusalem's Arnona neighborhood on Monday.

Since the 1967 war when Israel occupied East Jerusalem, the worldwide community, as documented in a multitude of United Nations resolutions, supported the establishment of a Palestinian state on the occupied West Bank and Gaza Strip with East Jerusalem as the capital.

"You were always among the first", he said at the ceremony. "You were the second country to recognize Israel", Netanyahu said at the ceremony, referring to its founding in 1948.

Trump's move reversed decades of US policy, upsetting the Arab world and Western allies.

Israel captured East Jerusalem in the 1967 Mideast war and later annexed it in a move not recognized internationally. The Trump administration has said the city's final borders should be decided by the parties.

The opening of the US embassy in Jerusalem on Monday triggered deadly clashes between Palestinian protesters and Israeli security forces in Gaza and the West Bank.

On Wednesday, a day after expelling Israel's ambassador in response to the Gaza deaths, Turkey ordered the Israeli consul general in Istanbul to return home. The outlet says a couple of other countries are considering a similar move.

No country recognised Jerusalem as Israel's capital until December 2017, when Trump declared it as such, breaking with decades of USA policy favouring the division of Jerusalem between Israel and a future Palestinian state.
