Khan resettlement in Belize: a quid pro quo with the U.S.?

Khan resettlement in Belize: a quid pro quo with the U.S.?

 In the court of public opinion, a request – or this agreement – with the United States Government is a major ask. Depending on whom you ask, this one is simply too big. But Belize has agreed, with the help of the U.S. to give Majid Khan a fresh start after being deemed a terrorist in the early years after 9/11. The media asked the U.S.’s Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary, Tina Kaidanow what does Belize get in return. Here’s how she responded. 

However, we point out that while Belize only accepted Khan, the U.S. had proposed resettlement arrangements for two other suspected terrorists. The National Security Advisor told Cabinet not to even consider the requests of the other two. Ambassador Kaidanow was asked if Belize should expect more of these requests in the future.
