noimageDiplomatic discussions between Belize and Guatemala for a Sarstoon agreement is scheduled to commence this Saturday, May 21st in Istanbul, Turkey. But even before that meeting takes place Presidents of Legislative Bodies of Central Americans Countries will be meeting to discuss tensions between Belize and Guatemala specifically in the Adjacency Zone which seem to escalate daily.


FORPEL, the Forum of Presidents of Legislative Bodies of Central America and the Caribbean basin, has called an emergency meeting in Managua Nicaragua on Thursday May 19th to come up with a diplomatic solution to the border dispute between Belize and Guatemala in order to avoid an armed conflict.


So far Presidents of Congress for El Salvador, Honduras, Costa Rica, Nicaragua and Guatemala represented by Mario Taracena and Belize Represented by Speaker of the House of Representatives Michael Peyrefitte have confirmed that they will be attending the meeting.

The meeting was solicited by Taracena, president of the Guatemalan Congress, who asked that the Legislative Assembly of Nicaragua serve as intermediary through Nicaragua’s President of the National Assembly, Rene Nunez Tellez who will host the discussions and witness the agreements reached.

 

Both Belize and Guatemala are members of this regional body whose mandate is to develop and strengthen cooperation between the Parliaments of Central America.
