Ambassador Hugo de Zela, chief of staff of the secretary general of the Organization of American States (OAS), José Miguel Insulza, announced on Thursday, in response to press inquiries, that “the coordination with authorities from Belize and Guatemala has been completed for a meeting of the foreign ministers of the two countries, in the presence of the chief representative of the OAS.”

De Zela confirmed that, on Monday, Insulza will take part in the meeting between the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Belize, Wilfred Elrington, and Guatemala, Harold Caballeros, in Guatemala City.

Regarding reports about the postponement of the meeting between Belize and Guatemala, De Zela said that Insulza’s agenda “has never been an obstacle for the realization of the bilateral meeting, as he has been constantly willing to postpone other commitments to go where the governments of Belize and Guatemala deem convenient and on the date on which they agree.”
