President Jimmy Morales Responds

Jimmy Morales

Guatemala was also represented at the seventh Summit in Cuba, by President Jimmy Morales and Foreign Minister Carlos Raul Morales. Not surprisingly, the president didn’t take kindly to the address by Vega soliciting the support of the ACS and asked permission to respond specifically to Vega’s comments.

 

Jimmy Morales, President, Guatemala

“Thank you very much, Mister President. I would like to briefly refer to the address made by the Deputy Prime Minister of Belize, where he refers to the territorial dispute with Guatemala. Firstly, Guatemala is a peace-seeking country. It has said so and has backed it up with its behavior and its actions. Secondly, it has been Belize that has not had respect for peace nor for the lives of Guatemalans. To clarify, it has been the Belize Defense Force that has killed ten Guatemalan civilians, the last one taking place in April of this year with the death of a thirteen year old child. He was shot at eight times, with four rifle bullets hitting him on his back. this is despite that two years ago, here in Cuba, in a CELAC meeting, it was declared that Latin America and the Caribbean be a peaceful region. Thirdly, I’m asking Belize to use the correct venues to discuss our dispute, since this needs to be resolved in a peaceful and civilized manner, at the International Court of Justice, as agreed by the two countries. I end by saying that Guatemala is a country that loves peace. It favors peaceful solutions to controversies, since it urged Belize to go as soon as possible to the International Court of Justice in order to solve our century old territorial, continental, insular and maritime dispute. Mister President, I lament having to use this forum to say this, but it was necessary to make the clarification. Thank you very much. May God bless you.”

    Stupid Guatemalans are killed because they are threatening our BDF soldiers; what do you expect Jimmy? You think soldiers will sit down and wait for some foolish Guatemalan to come and kill them.
    That will never happen!!

  2. Mrs. P says:

    Dear Jimmy Moralez,

    1. If you and your people know that there is a high chance of them getting killed while being illegally in Belizean territory, DON’T come to Belize territory illegally!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    2. You keep saying about the 12 year old child that was killed… it’s about time you ask yourself “What am I doing to stop child labour in Guatemala?” As far as the world is concerned, that child should have been at home after coming from school on a weekday — not in illegal territory at 6 pm working.

    3. Peace? Peace? Please!!!! Wasn’t your former President just accused of genocide the other day? Is that what you call peace??? Too bad he is too old and senile to be jailed.

    jimmy morales:

    Hablas con elocuencia, pero no puedes esconder quien eres. Antes te vestias de payaso, ahora te vistes de obeja. Pero facilmente se logra ver el lobo que eres, salivando por mas riquezas, riquezas que ahora ves en Belice. Tus cologeas en esa junta en La Habana, seguramente se dieron cuenta. Pobre de ti. Pronto te daran golpe de estado en Guatemala, porque no logras resolver los grandes problemas del estado; es mas, se los empeoras.

    jimmy morales:

    You talk with eloquence, but you cannot hide who you are. Before you used to dress as a clown, now you dress as a sheep. But it is easy to see the wolf you are, salivating for more riches, riches that you now see in Belize. Your colleagues in the meeting in Havana surely noticed that. Poor you. Soon the people in your country will overthrow you because you are not solving their woes, more so, you are making them worse.

  5. Peter says:

    if Guatemala is a peaceful country why did they kill their own people in a genocide.
    Jimmy your own people protested agianst you for economic downturn.

    I knw guatemala is a corrupted country in C.A

  6. Belizean Pride says:

    seeing him react in a diplomatic meeting like this was too bad for him, he seems to be used as a puppet by other strong string in guatemala for the sole purpose of a few elite class. Soon he’ll be drag along when they find he is not the one they wanted. In history he’ll be remember as the countries clown and the world worst low class president elected being a clown. You can clearly see he is being manipulated to try incite this claim by force against many guatemalans who oppose this idea but rather would ask for a better living condition where they poverty level and malnutrition is the highest in the region.

  7. carlos says:

    He has no clue how to govern his country. Instead of getting in problem with Belize, he should have been finding ways how to solve all the problems Guatemala is going through. Campesinos need agriculture land to work, that is why they are coming illegal into the chikibul reserve . People need jobs with better pay, They can not develop the department of Peten.

    Yes
    No
    Vote
    LOOK AT POLL ABOVE, MAKES ME WANT TO %^&*( MY PANTS RIGHT HERE SITTING DOWN !!!
    So I ask one question: WILL TAXES BE CHARGED TO ALL ILLEGAL WORKERS FROM GUATEMALA, COMING EVERY DAY TO DO ALL….ALL KIND OF JOBS? FROM SELLING NEWSPAPER TO CONSTRUCTION, TAXIS, TAXIS BRINGING IN CONTRABAND, ETC ETC. ALL THAT IS MONEY FLOWING AWAY FROM BELIZE AND NO TAX COLLECTED .SOMEONE HIT THE JACKPOT WITH ALL THOSE GUATEMALAN TAXISOPERATING IN THE CAYO DISTRICT .
