Ministers of Foreign Affairs of Belize and Guatemala agree on referendum date

April 27th, 2012

A referendum to decide whether Guatemala’s unfounded claim over Belize’s territory should be argued and resolved at the International Court of Justice (ICJ) will be held on October 6, 2013.

The date was agreed to by the delegations from Belize and Guatemala, headed by their respective Foreign Ministers, Wilfred Elrington and Harold Caballeros, at a meeting at the Organization of American States (OAS) on Friday April 27th, 2012.

The date was selected with no prior knowledge or consultation with Belizeans.

The Foreign Ministers have committed that an information campaign will take place in both countries to inform its citizens of the issues and the referendum.

The Ministers agreed to meet in June to examine the confidence-building measures, and to strengthen cooperation with persons who reside in the border area, referred to by the OAS as the Belize-Guatemala Adjacency Zone.

Belize was represented by the Hon. Wilfred Elrington, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Attorney General of Belize, H.E. Senior Ambassador Alfredo Martinez, Ambassador Nestor Mendez, Ambassador Lisa Shoman and First Secretary Kendall Belisle.
