Guatemala moves embassy to Jerusalem

International Relations Minister Lindiwe Sisulu says government's intent to downgrading the South African embassy in Israel still stands.

South Africans demonstrated in solidarity with Palestinians on Tuesday, a day after 60 were killed protesting the U.S. embassy's move to Jerusalem, with anti-apartheid icon Archbishop Desmond Tutu declaring himself "brokenhearted". The demonstrations were fuelled by a controversial decision by US President Donald Trump to move the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

Sheikh Shamiel Panday said that it was up to the man on the street to show solidarity with the Palestinian people because "no country as a whole gives a damn".

"The South African government regards the occupation of Palestine as unjust, and to that extent, we need to continue the effort that there is a climate for peace. and encouragement of dialogue". "Our best weapon is prayer, we are united", said Panday.

"If we were to expel their ambassador they would expel ours".

"We obviously are going to apply our minds with Cabinet colleagues, and we will respond in due course at the soonest available opportunity", he said.
