…More on Belize/Guatemala Border Issues

Dean Barrow

Additionally, P.M. Barrow maintains that informing Guatemala of the intent to erect a forward operating base or to increase Belize’s military presence near its boundaries in the west and the south is simply an act of good neighborliness.

 

Prime Minister Dean Barrow

“In talking to the group of friends, people will always advise caution accepting that Belize is sovereign over her territory but people will always say if you’re going to do anything leading to an increased military presence in the border areas, as a matter of good sense and as a matter of committee you let your neighbors know what is happening so that there can be no misunderstanding.  But I don’t know of any friendly country that has ever come close to saying to us you absolutely should not do what you think you need to do with respect to your security.”
