To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what his policy is on the statement on the border dispute between Belize and Guatemala; and if he will make a statement.
UK policy is to reduce the likelihood of conflict on the Belize-Guatemala border and to encourage settlement of the dispute through arbitration or negotiation.
do this through our contacts with both governments and by supporting
confidence building measures, designed to reduce the potential for
conflict. These aim to improve links between the two countries and by
providing impartial investigation and mediation of border incursions
and other incidents.
This is a pretty brief answer and over the last few years UK Governments have done their best to down play any UK responsibility in this issue. More on Belize-Guatemala on this blog here.
