Prime Minister Dean Barrow spoke on this latest encounter this morning right after his plane landed at the Philip Goldson International Airport. As you heard, he confirmed that incident played out last week Wednesday ironically while meetings were being held in Washington to discuss other incidences at the Adjacency Zone and the Sarstoon. If not for the release of the video to the media the encounter would have remained in the shadows since P.M Barrow did not even give me the media a hint of the incident when he held his press conference just one day after. As we told you previously…..nothing came out of that press conference other than the PM stating that the resolution of the meetings are seen as a breakthrough. So, we still don’t known when discussions will resume to set protocols for the Sarstoon. But what we can tell you is that Guatemala has until next week when the Sarstoon Law…which restricts Belizeans from entering the Sarstoon without proper authority expires…to come to the drawing board. Or at least that is the ultimatum the PM has placed.

“If by next week the Guatemalans don’t actually act on what I take to be the commitment for us to sit down and talk it is as I said when new first pass the regulation then all bets are off, look given our situation, diplomacy is clearly the best way to go hands on but there is a point beyond which we can’t take no more and I don’t want to be pre-mature, all I will say is time is running out and unless we get now a hard indication of the willingness on the part of the Guatemalans to act in accordance on what I took to be the commitment given by the OAS we are going to rescind the regulation and then we have to do what we have to do.”
