By BBN Staff: The United States Embassy in Belize today issued a statement commending Belize’s security forces for the September 9 major drug bust of over 556 kilograms of cocaine in northern Belize.

This operation, which was a collaboration between the Belize Police Department and the Belize Defence Force, shows the importance of cooperation between law enforcement and other security agencies to combat criminal organizations.

“Belize remains on the U.S. ‘Majors’ list – those nations deemed to be major illicit drug producing and/or transit countries – but this weekend’s action shows the important work Belize is doing to combat the transshipment of illegal drugs,” the statement explains.

The US Embassy urges the Government of Belize to intensify these efforts and prosecute offenders.

The United States values the close partnership with Belize and the many ties our countries share.

The U.S. Embassy will continue to support Belize by partnering with border security, law enforcement, military, and criminal justice agencies to strengthen citizen security across the country.
