Sarstoon0003As mentioned at the top of the newscast Sunday’s trip to the Sarstoon Island planned by the Belize Territorial Volunteers is causing much controversy. Among those who believe that the trip should not go carried out is the National Security Council who meet this afternoon for a special session to discuss the security and citizen protection issues arising out of the trip.


After the meeting the NSC issued a release reiterating the position already taken by the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and National Security. They say that Sunday's expedition to the Sarstoon Island is ill-advised and downright dangerous. But since the NSC is most concerned about the safety of Belizean citizens, they have put in place a contingency plan to try to deal with all possible consequences of the action of the Territorial Volunteers, says the release.


The plan apparently involves local positioning, outreach and coordination with key diplomatic partners and a central role for the OAS who will be in the vicinity of the Sarstoon Island in an observer/peace-keeping role even before the expedition arrives.

Despite this fact though, the NTC believes that the expedition should be called off and the committee advises those in charge to do precisely that.
