Guatemala "maintains the highest level of political dialogue with Israel, and has a very strong relationship", Morales said.
Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales announced Sunday at AIPAC's annual policy conference in Washington that the Guatemalan embassy in Israel will move to Jerusalem in May.
During her visit Haley congratulated Morales for his work against corruption and respect for human rights, even though previous year Guatemala had massive protests demanding their president resign over corruption allegations.

Speaking to The Times of Israel after his address, Morales said he has discussed embassy moves with other nations in Europe and Latin America but would not identify them.
Morales, an Evangelical Christian, was the first global leader to follow Trump's December 6 declaration with one of his own on December 24, 2017 in recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital.
The 2015 election of Morales, an evangelical Christian and former TV comedian, to the Guatemalan presidency further bolstered ties between the two countries.
