USA congratulates Belize on successful referendum

Posted: Thursday, May 9, 2019. 8:50 am CST.

By BBN Staff: The United States of America (USA) issued a statement this morning congratulating the people of Belize on a successful referendum on the question of whether or not to send Guatemala’s land, insular, and maritime claim to the International Court of Justice.

“By referring the matter to the International Court of Justice, the country has chosen to move forward in the peaceful, final resolution of this dispute. That resolution will be good for the people of Belize, the people of Guatemala, the people of Central America, and ultimately the people of our entire hemisphere,” the statement asserted.

The US says that this will open the way to increased trade, travel, and better cooperation on everything from fighting drug-trafficking to social development to preserving the environment.

Furthermore, the US says that in a time when peaceful dispute resolution and respect for rule of law and international norms are all too elusive, the people of Belize should be proud of what this vote stands for.

As a founding member of the Group of Friends of Belize and Guatemala, the United States looks forward to continuing support for both countries as they take the next steps in this process and the concurrent efforts of the Belize-Guatemala Joint Commission.
