What Should North Park Street Make of Kareem’s Visit to China?

Kareem Musa

Is Mainland China attempting to curry favour with Belize by inviting members of parliament to visit that country?  It’s a perception, Musa says, that can be drawn from the invitations.

“In the context, however, of a majority of Taiwan’s allies or former allies on this part of the world who have since pulled out of any diplomatic relations with Taiwan, what is your position on the way it might be perceived from North Park Street?”

“From the Taiwanese Embassy? Well, I think they would perceive it that mainland China is courting members of the political parties, whether it’s PUP or UDP, I think there may be that perception.  But like I said, I want to make it very clear that I do not stand in any position to make any commitment on behalf of either the party or the Government of Belize and so they should not feel any way about that.”
