By BBN Staff: For the first time since the withdrawal of British Troops in 1994, a National Defense Plan is being prepared by Belize’s Ministry of National Defense.

The first draft of the plan was presented to Minister of National Security, John Saldivar at a two-day workshop conducted at the Coast Guard Headquarters.

The National Defense Plan includes the use of all instruments of national power in the defense of Belize against any external aggression.

The plan ensures the achievement of a credible defense deterrent capability and defensive operational capacity to guarantee the territorial integrity and national sovereignty of Belize.

The plan was authorized by the Minister of National Security in April 2018.

The formation of the plan comes amidst Belize’s public awareness campaign leading toward a national referendum to be held in Belize in April 2019.

On April 10, 2019, Belizeans will decide whether or not they want to take Guatemala’s long-standing claim on Belize’s continental, insular and maritime territory to the ICJ.

The decision made at the ICJ is final and cannot be appealed.

On April 15, 2018, Guatemala held its national referendum in which they voted Yes to the ICJ.
