In a press release issued this afternoon the meeting of universities from all over Central America reiterated its support for the independent development of the University of Belize. It also called on the United Nations to support the initiative taken by the University of San Carlos in Guatemala and the University of Belize to form a civil society commission to promote greater understanding and reduce conflict between the two nations. A similar mechanism has already been established between Costa Rica and Nicaragua. The two-day meeting of CSUCA was attended by over forty delegates.
