Belize Council of Churches Says YES to the I.C.J.

The Belize Council of Churches has come out in favour of going to the International Court of Justice and is offering prayers for a settlement of the dispute. After carefully examining the evidence, and the pros and cons, the Council issued a statement saying that “a favourable vote on April tenth, 2019 to submit the territorial dispute to the International Court of Justice is in the best interest of our beloved nation and its people.” The Council says that it provides its view on the issue as a matter of social justice in fostering a peaceful resolution to the territorial dispute at hand. It says that peace is not just the absence of war, but rather it is the tranquillity of order. The Council says that the “International Court of Justice is a means by which peace and harmony can be achieved between peoples and nations.”
