President Morales of Guatemala calls on Belize to conduct ICJ Referendum

Posted: Thursday, April 11, 2019. 3:02 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: Yesterday, Guatemalan President Jimmy Morales hosted a brief press conference where he asked the Government of Belize to fulfill its commitment to seek a legal solution to Guatemala’s claim on Belize’s territory.

“We already did our part of the work. We want to urge the brother country of Belize so that it can do the same, ” Morales stated referring to Belize’s national referendum that was postponed.

A report in the Prensa Libre newspaper informs that Morales admitted that in Belize there will always be different positions on the issue.

But, the report claims, he stressed that the position of Belize’s Prime Minister Dean Barrow has been to seek a peaceful and legal solution to the claim.

When Guatemalan media outlets asked Morales about the viral video in which he demonstrated how to draw the Guatemalan map with Belize included, he responded that it is a recommendation.

” It was an interaction with the child and the teacher, a recommendation, suggestion, always to draw the Belizean territory,” Morales stated.

Morales also said that experts had told him that the Guatemalan map should only include half of Belize, but Guatemala’s claim is the entire territory.
