By Chrisbert Garcia: A statement from the Government of Belize’s Press Office, released earlier this morning, noted that a team of officials would be heading to the Sarstoon Island for ground breaking of the new Forward Operating Base.
That team included Minister of National Security John Saldivar, Minister of Education Patrick Faber, Minister of State Frank Mena and other members of the Ministry of National security, such as the Ministry’s CEO, retired Colonel George Lovell.
Also on the trip to Sarstoon, are members of the Belize Defense Force, Coast Guard, media and two representatives from the Organization of American States’ (OAS) Adjacency Office.
This new base will help to increase border security at Belize’s southernmost area, bordering with Guatemala.
