Mexico Reiterates Support for I.C.J. Resolution of Dispute

Carlos Quesnel Melendez

Mexico was one of the thirteen countries at Wednesday’s meeting of the Permanent Council of the Organization of American States which supported Belize and Guatemala during their appearance there. Both Foreign Ministers Wilfred Elrington and Sandra Jovel Polanco tried to rally international support for the upcoming referenda on resolving the dispute at the International Court of Justice. Mexico’s Ambassador Carlos Quesnel Melendez on Wednesday reiterated his country’s continuing support for the Belize/Guatemala territorial resolution through the I.C.J.  His country is one of the Friends of Belize and Guatemala and offers moral and monetary support.

“As part of the group of friends we have been very supportive and we have given some money and we will [keep trying] to give more money. It’s a difficult moment not only for Mexico but for many countries; we go through authority problems, very strong authority problems but we will also support all the mechanisms and we will bring this issue to the group of friends meetings to try to find mechanisms to get more funds for the peaceful fund for the Belize-Guatemala issue.”
