Belize Foreign Minister Wilfred Elrington and Suriname Foreign Minister Winston Lackin met with Organization of American States Secretary General Jose Miguel Insulza in New York Wednesday.

Elrington’s discussions focused on the region’s current political context and on Belize’s territorial dispute with Guatemala.

Following the discussions, Elrington met with his Guatemalan counterpart, Harold Caballeros.

In his conversation with Lackin, Insulza urged Suriname’s government to make a decision on the composition, objectives and application of a proposed truth and reconciliation commission on the so-called “December” murders of the 1980s.

Lackin thanked the OAS for sending a fact-finding mission related to Suriname’s request for help in setting up the commission.

The talks came after a similar meeting by Trinidad and Tobago Foreign Minister Winston Dookeran Tuesday with Insulza.
