By BBN Staff:On Friday, the media took the opportunity to ask Prime Minister Dean Barrow about the United Nations (UN) resolution calling for the United States to drop its recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
Belize voted along with 127 nations against the United States.
After the resolution, the United States ambassador to the United Nations said in a video on social media that the President of the US will be watching the vote carefully and said she would report back on the countries that voted against the US.
Barrow said that he is hoping that the US does not cut funding since they are one of the main contributors in relation to security in Belize.
