Exclusive : Brigadier General David Jones speaks on Belize-Guatemala relations

Updated: June 24, 2015

With the recent occurrences between Belize and Guatemala, including the detention of the five Belizeans, the crashing of a Guatemalan Naval Vessel upon Belize’s reef and the confrontation at Sarstoon Island, we were concerned at how such events are hampering the relations between the Belizean and Guatemalan military.  We asked Brigadier General, David Jones to enlighten us on those relations.

As it pertains to incidents between Belize and Guatemala, there is collaboration between the ministries of Foreign Affairs and National Security, in an effort to sustain peaceful relations.
