By Aaron Humes: Near-neighbors Belize and Honduras have shaken hands on a number of agreements made during an official visit by Tegucigalpa’s Foreign Secretary Lisandro Rosales Banegas.
Secretary Banegas met with his Belizean opposite Eamon Courtenay, their discussion covering several areas of bilateral cooperation including agriculture and food security, the fight against illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing, tourism, air transport and services, migration, as well as the call for the operationalization of the Permanent Forum on People of African Descent. Minister Courtenay also briefed Secretary Rosales on Belize’s preparation for COP26.
The ministers signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) for the Establishment of a Mechanism for Bilateral Political Consultation. This MOU seeks to become a forum for coordination and bilateral negotiations, which will define from an integrated approach, the areas of political and economic cooperation issues that both countries wish to pursue.
Minister Courtenay also handed over to Secretary Rosales the title for a parcel of land for the construction of the permanent location of the Embassy of Honduras in Belize. This land is located on Embassy Square in Belmopan, near the Embassy of Mexico and British High Commission.
Both were accompanied by their deputies and other members of their respective delegations.
Belize and the Republic of Honduras established diplomatic relations on 21 September 1982.
