“Mexican Navy vessels customarily transit from their Chetumal Bay base on a routinely scheduled basis through that area with the knowledge and permission of the Government of Belize to access their southernmost outpost at Xcalac” reads the statement that was sent to the media this afternoon.

According to the GOB Press Office, the Belize Coast Guard responded from their Forward Operating Base at San Pedro Ambergris Caye and they are in communication with the Mexican Navy who is cooperating on a response to this incident.

The Belize Coast Guard along with the Belize Port Authority, the Department of the Environment, and the Fisheries Department are also coordinating an assessment of the impact of the grounding of the Mexican Navy Vessel.

The press release ends by saying that “ the Belize Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Mexican Secretariat of External Relations are currently in the process of completing negotiations on a Memorandum of Understanding on Innocent Passage to formalize such Mexican Navy transit arrangements through our maritime spaces in accordance with Contemporary International Law and Practice.”
