Mexico is a member of the Group and today the media asked Ambassador of Mexico to Belize, Carlos Quesnel to comment on the issue of Guatemala invading the Sarstoon River this past weekend. He said Mexico is aware of the situation and hopes that the countries can handle the situation peacefully.
“We are certainly concerned and we favor a peaceful settlement. Mexico as a member of the OAS is trying to help to reach solution at the OAS level and we are confident that both countries will find solutions together.
