Is Sedi’s Bromance with Carlos Raul Getting in Way of Bilateral Talks?

Eamon Courtenay

While Elrington says he doesn’t pay any attention to that, he may pay attention to the stinging criticism leveled at him by P.U.P. Senator and former Foreign Minister Eamon Courtenay. According to Courtenay, Elrington is so caught up in his love for Guatemalan Foreign Minister Carlos Raul Morales that he’s forgotten his role in the talks with Guatemala.


Eamon Courtenay, Opposition Representative, Guatemalan Talks

“We believe that his management of the process has not led to any success for Belize. We believe that this continued public declaration of love and admiration and affection for the Foreign Minister of Guatemala Carlos Raul Morales is clouding his judgment and his vision on this issue. Let me break it down like this. If we do not regard this as a crisis, if we do not regard this as a threat, then nobody in the international community will regard it as a threat and a crisis. And every time the Foreign Minister speaks he professes love and admiration for Carlos Raul Morales. It therefore means that as far as we’re concerned, we are all happy, we are all friends and this is all going to be worked out. That is wrong…it is factually wrong, it is legally wrong and we are sending the absolute wrong message to the international community. It is because of that fundamental difference that we say this process needs to be managed by someone else who regards this as a violation of our sovereignty, as a threat to our existence as a nation and who has a desire and a plan to work it the way it ought to be worked. That is the view of the People’s United Party.”

    How could Courtney and the PUP have the face of brass to critique Sedi, when they themselves are doing nothing to internationalize this Guatemalan crisis? Should they not have been in LA about 10 days ago leading the charge and letting the world know what’s the current situation in the Chickibul and the Sarstoon? They are just as weak and pathetic as the FM.
