The government of Belize held talks on Monday with the European Union in Belmopan.

The “European Union Political Dialogue” aimed to “engage in discussions on issues of mutual interest and share information on the actions and initiatives that both Belize and the European Union are undertaking in the economic, social and political areas,” according to a statement from the government of Belize.

It was held under the Cotonou Agreement, which provides the framework for the European Union’s relations with scores of developing countries.

High on the agenda were issues relating to economic and political developments, border issues, unreported and unregulated fishing, visa arrangements, crime and security, human rights, climate change and others, according to Belize’s government.

Ambassador Paola Amadei, joined by the resident British High Commissioner, led the European Union delegation, while Belize Foreign Minister Wilfred Elrington led Belize’s delegation in the talks.

The two sides said they viewed the dialogue as “another indicator of excellent bilateral relations,” agreeing to hold the bilateral political dialogue sessions annually.
