By BBN Staff: Belize Territorial Volunteers (BTV) Founder Wil Maheia told the media yesterday that the government should be making a greater effort to internationalize the unfounded Guatemalan claim against Belize in order to win global support.
According to Maheia, Belize should appeal to the United Nations Security Council. Maheia said that because of the current situation with Guatemala and the high level of tension that currently exists on both sides of the border, the UN Security Council has a mandate to ensure the countries maintain a peaceful existence.
Maheia also noted that Belize has struggled to keep up global appearances as Guatemala has been on a mission to spread its version of events, even though many claims made by Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales have been proven to be false.
“We are demanding that out government take it to the UN so that the UN could try and settle this matter,” Maheia said.
