By BBN Staff: Today Minister of Foreign Affairs, Wilfred Elrington and Guatemalan Foreign Minister Sandra Jovel made presentations to the Permanent Council of the Organization of American States (OAS) to update on the status of settling the territorial dispute.
In his presentation, Elrington explained to the OAS that Belize will not be going to a referendum on taking the dispute to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) before the March Municipal Elections or the Voter re-registration, which will take place sometime later this year.
Elrington also took the opportunity to appeal to member countries and allies of Belize to offer assistance by way of finance and expertise to assist with the referendum process.
The section on Belize and Guatemala ended with brief remarks by OAS Secretary General Luis Almagro.
