New Guat Ambassador Comes to Belize

Georges de La Roche Du Ronzet

A new Guatemalan ambassador has taken up residence in Belize, almost two years after his predecessor Manuel Estuardo Roldan Barillas was abruptly recalled.  Roldan returned to a new post as Guatemala’s Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs amid heightened tension between both countries, following the shooting death of Guatemalan teenager Julio Alvarado Ruano in the Chiquibul Forest in April 2016.  Earlier today, Georges de La Roche Du Ronzet called on Governor General Colville Young at the Belize House in Belmopan.  Accompanied by a delegation, the former Director General of International Bilateral Affairs presented his Letter of Credence which was kindly received by the representative of the Crown.


Said ‘Badi’ Guerra, Chief of Protocol

“I have the honor of introducing to you His Excellency Georges de La Roche.”

“It is my pleasure, it is my privilege to be able to present credentials to your Excellency today, on behalf of the government and people of Guatemala to bridge a closer governments and peoples friendships.  It’s an honor your Excellency.  Thank you.”


In his previous capacity, de La Roche was in charge of all diplomatic relations and issues with all of Guatemala’s embassies abroad, as well as all embassies accredited in Guatemala.  His office was tasked with focusing on bilateral political consultations, development and cooperation, including commerce and cultural diplomacy.
