Minister of Foreign Affairs says relations with Israel remain suspended

Posted: Friday, January 19, 2024. 10:37 am CST.

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Last year, the Government of Belize suspended diplomatic relations with Israel following Hamas attack on Israel on October 7 and Israel’s response in declaring war.

In response, Israel’s Foreign Ministry accused Belize of “blatantly ignoring the October 7 massacre in which more than 1,200 people, including babies, women and the elderly, were brutally murdered, many in their own homes, by the Hamas terrorist organization.”

Since then, the International Community continues to call for an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

Many Church organizations have called on the Government to reconsider the position taken against Israel.

But Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade Francis Fonseca says that diplomatic relations remain suspended.

During an interview with LOVE TV, Fonseca said that the decision was made by the cabinet.

“Not at this point. You know the decision to suspend relations with Israel was a Cabinet decision that was taken to the Cabinet by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. So if there is any change in that position again it would have to be the Cabinet that would make that decision. So we’re not there yet and things remain the same in terms of Israel at this point,” Fonseca expressed.

All activities of Belize’s Honorary Consulate in Tel Aviv, Israel remain suspended.
