Sandra Jovel

Foreign affairs minister of Guatemala

Sandra Jovel has served as Guatemala’s foreign affairs minister since 2017. During her tenure, the Central American nation moved its embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, the only nation besides the United States to do so. Jovel, who traveled to Israel for the Guatemalan embassy inauguration, hailed her nation’s “important Jewish community” and called Jerusalem “the eternal capital of Israel.” She also said, “We are doing the right thing in accordance with the foreign policy that Guatemala has had toward Israel over the past 70 years.” Guatemala’s embassy in Israel was the country’s first in Asia.
