By Chrisbert Garcia: Prime Minister Dean Barrow is scheduled to return home on Sunday after attending the inauguration ceremony of new Guatemalan President, Jimmy Morales, where he witnessed the peaceful transition of government in that country, to which his invitation was personally delivered by Morales during a visit two weeks ago.
At the ceremony, in his speech, Morales spoke nicely of intentions to resolve the dispute between our country and his, by stating: “We want to advance in the resolution of the territorial, maritime and insular dispute with Belize, our brothers and neighbor with whom we wish to develop a bilateral agenda of neighborliness and cooperation.”
PM Barrow met with many dignitaries such as Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden, to whom he raised the concern of the correspondent banking issues facing Belize.
The Government of Belize is planning a visit to Washington D.C later this month to address that same concern and Biden was interested in doing what he can to assist PM Barrow in resolving it.
