Guatemala Rejects Belize’s Sarstoon Protocols

Guatemala has finally responded to the eleven point proposal by Belize regarding protocol on the Sarstoon.  There has been no official word from Government on the issue but according to several media reports, information leaked to the press indicate that Guatemala has rejected those protocols and has proposed that both countries instead just go back to maintaining the status quo.  Now Belize’s interpretation of that “status quo” is obviously different from Guatemala’s since the GAF have now stopped several Belizean organizations and vessels from travelling on the Sarstoon; demanding that Belizeans get permission from GAF first.  In related news, the Belizean Sarstoon Forward operating base will be officially opening tomorrow.download
