By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: On April 28, 2024, the Guatemalan Armed Forces hosted a press conference to report on an incident on the Sarstoon River last Saturday.

A video of an encounter between Belizeans and the Guatemalan Armed Forces was shared on social media after Belizean journalists were being escorted by the BDF for a tour of the Sarstoon Forward Operating Base.

According to the Guatemalan Armed Forces, they intercepted a boat of BDF soldiers who informed that they were escorting a tour with journalists and said they were in Belizean territory.

However, the Guatemalan officials say that they proceeded with the established protocol of the Sarstoon River and informed the Belizeans that they were in Guatemalan waters without authorization.

“They were made to understand that they were in Guatemalan waters without authorization, they were invited to leave Guatemalan waters and they were escorted to their starting point,” explained Colonel Rubén Téllez, spokesman for the Guatemalan Army.

Guatemalan authorities that they have now increased presence on the Sarstoon River.
