Updated: April 15, 2016

While the BNTU is seeking knowledge on the Belize/Guatemala matter there is also the issue of the International Court of Justice and whether Belize should or should not go.  Former Foreign Minister Assad Shoman spoke on the advantages that Belize has over Guatemala in the territorial differendum.

According to BNTU’s President, Luke Palacio the union will eventually present a position on the matter after sufficient consultations have been done with the parties involved.

Foreign Minister Wilfred Elrington reiterated in his presentation today the position of the Barrow administration when it comes to going to the International Court of Justice.

Elrington recommitted today that the country would go to referendum prior to any move to go to the ICJ.
