Yesterday we reported that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a press release expressing their grave concern about planned trips to the western and southern borders of Belize due to the fact that these are key areas in which there is constant tension between citizens of Belize and Guatemala. The Ministry believes that these excursions that are organized are quite risky for many Belizeans.
Today the Belize Progressive Party responded to the Government’s release and expressed their dissatisfaction with the statement that was made by GOB.
The BPP stated that they stand in solidarity with the Belize Territorial Volunteers and believes that as Belizeans, we should all be able to travel freely within the full 8,867 square miles of our nation without having to feel any fear.
The BPP is calling on all Belizeans to ‘condemn’ the GOB’s statement and is urging the Belize Defense Force to fulfill their duty which is primarily to serve and protect the people of Belize from all external aggression, especially within our territory.
The BPP ends by saying that Belizean officials, citizens and true friends of Belize will all be accompanying the Territorial Volunteers on their excursion to the Sarstoon that is scheduled for this Saturday, February 27th, 2016.
