PM says no referendum on Belize-Guatemala border dispute

BELMOPAN, Belize, CMC – Prime Minister Dean Barrow says there will be no referendum in Belize and Guatemala on October 6 as the two countries seek to end a long standing border dispute between them.
Barrow told reporters that confirmation that the referendum would not be held on October 6 as planned came during a meeting in Haiti between Foreign Affairs Minister Sedi Elrington and his Guatemalan counterpart, Fernando Carrera. Both men were attending the Association of Caribbean States (ACS) summit in Port au Prince over the last weekend.
“There will be no referendum on October 6. There has been a suggestion in some quarters that Belize could still proceed to hold its referendum. That is not on,” Prime Minister Barrow said.
