Guatemalan President Elect to Visit Belize

On Tuesday, we reported that Guatemalan President Elect, Jimmy Morales has embarked on a traditional tour of Central America and Mexico, which is part of the protocol by incoming presidents of the region. While he takes office in less than two months, on January fourteenth 2016, Morales began his tour in Honduras and met privately with President Juan Orlando Gutierrez. Custom issues, matters of security and migration as well as the environment were discussed. He has already made stops in El Salvador, Nicaragua and Panama and is currently in Mexico. But will he visit Belize? Well today, the Office of the Prime Minister announced that Dean Barrow will  “be receiving President-elect of the Republic of Guatemala Mr. Jimmy Morales on Saturday, the twenty-eighth of November, 2015.”  But it is just a courtesy call, says the release and it is  “not expected that the meeting will delve into too much detail of our bilateral relations.”  Of note is that Morales has repeatedly said he will do everything he possibly can to regain Belize and those statements do not augur well for relations between the two countries.

    Marb I understand the first part f your comment, but you lost me down the line. However, I too am proud to call myself BELIZEAN and Guatemala and its president can go take a hike. I am sure only what is politically correct will be revealed to the public concerning that meeting. All the cloak and dagger shit will stay behind closed doors. To “stand up belize” About the selling off of a part of our territory? It has already happened dude. Have you not been listening?
