The Israel Allies Foundation held a conference Wednesday on antisemitism in the Congress of Guatemala.
Guatemala was chosen for the conference, because it followed the US's lead by moving its embassy to Jerusalem.
The conference, among others, featured US Congressman Alan Clemmons from South Carolina.
Rep. Clemmons authored the first modern legislation in the US, regulating against commercial boycotts of Israel.
Recently, he also spearheaded South Carolina’s first ever codification of a uniform definition of anti-Semitism by an American state.
"From the moment the modern State of Israel was restored on May 14, 1948, the United States and Guatemala have stood firmly by their side," Clemmons said.
"We are also here in the Congress of Guatemala to honor the parliamentarians that initiated a letter to President Morales last year encouraging him to move the Guatemalan Embassy to Jerusalem, following the lead of US President Donald Trump."
