Relations between Belize and Guatemala still strained

Thursday, March 23, 2017

Almost a year ago, Guatemala’s Ambassador to Belize was called back to Guatemala for consultations, and although a diplomatic note was sent out roughly two weeks ago announcing his resumption of duties in Belize, Belize Foreign Minister Wilfred “Sedi” Elrington told the media today that the Ambassador is in Guatemala—not Belize.

Elrington said repeatedly that Ambassador Roldan, who was visible last week in meetings held in Guatemala with Secretary General of the Organization of American States Luis Almagro, is not back in Belize.

“We would wish for him to come back. We are hoping that he’s going come back, but he is not in the country,” Elrington stressed.
