By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Minister of Foreign Affairs Francis Fonseca has called out the Leader of the Opposition, Shyne Barrow for his “narco state” comments.

“I think that is absolutely reckless and irresponsible. It is pathetic and there are so many other adjectives that I could use but it is certainly an absolutely disappointing and I think it reflects very poorly on him. This is our country and Belize is absolutely not a Narco state and we know what narco states look like if you have any idea of foreign policy and if you have any understanding of national security issues you would know what a narco state is,” Minister Fonseca said.

“We have seen those in Latin America and parts of Central America as well and so Belize is not there and we are absolutely committed to doing everything we can to ensure that as we keep saying that no narco trafficking organizations gains a foothold in this country. So, I condemn in the strongest possible terms the leader of the opposition I think it is a desperate plea for support and I think all right thinking Belizeans should condemn his words,” the Foreign Minister added.

Minister Fonseca reiterated that Barrow’s comments are “a desperate plea for attention.”
