Guatemala and Belize in talks on referendum

Tuesday, October 23, 2012


The OAS Secretary General, Jose Miguel Insulza and the foreign ministers from Guatemala and Belize initiated a working reunion to refine the details on the referendum that will be carried out by both countries on October of next year.

The objective of the one day meeting was to “refine the details on the referendum” in which the decision of both countries regarding the territorial litigation that they maintain for over a century will be submitted before the International Court of Justice, said a source from the Guatemalan Ministry.

Although from 1991 Guatemala recognized Belize’s independence, they still claim close to 50 percent of territory from the former British colony.
