PM Says There Are More Questions Than Answers

According to the Prime Minister, there are more questions than answers and a whole lot of verification that would need to be done. One question which immediately arises, says the PM, is why the Cubans could not be flown directly to Mexico rather than flying to Belize City then travelling north. That is only one of the challenges to GOB giving approval to the transit of the Cuban.

“The President told me they have like four thousand and he said he was asking Belize and he was asking Guatemala and now seeing the report that Guatemala has said no. I don’t want ot get too far ahead of myself because I am not sure that cabinet will be prepared to countenance this at all. But in the event the answer would be yes I would see us only dealing with a very limited number for the very simple reason you are talking about logistics and we do not have the human resources to handle any large flow. But I stress it really is premature because not only have they not followed up in the way that he have indicated they would I also think giving an interview which I believe the president or his foreign minister did without me even being able to speak with cabinet; has kind of prejudice the situation just a little bit so I think it’s going to be a challenge to get cabinet. Let me be careful I don’t want it sound as if I want cabinet to say yes. I think that the proposal is likely to run into some fundamental difficulties if it even reaches the point of getting before cabinet on Tuesday.”

 

So tonight none of it is still not clear if the government would allow the Cubans to be transported to Belize.
