The statements made, in fact, the position taken by the Prime Minister in Wednesday’s press conference is notably different from that of the Foreign Minister who has been widely accused of being appeasing to the Guatemalans. When asked whether the Foreign Minister may be misrepresenting the Government’s position in the matter, the Prime Minister basically brushed the question off.

“But you see sir, you based your question on a judgment you make on Mister Elrington’s utterances. I don’t know that I accept your judgment.”

“But it’s on the record sir…”


Honorable Dean Barrow – Prime Minister of Belize


“But, but…I’m not saying I don’t, I’m not saying I do, but you surely will understand I can’t answer a question that’s premised on your judgment. All I can do sir, is to repeat that there are ministers, they are responsible for their portfolios, they make their statements in connection therewith. Ultimately, if I have to speak on any issue in any minister’s portfolio that becomes the authoritative line.”
