Belize-Guatemala Diplomatic Incident

Guatemala has provoked a diplomatic incident by using a map of Guatemala showing Belize as a part of their territory at an Organization of American States (OAS) Forum on Wednesday. At the OAS headquarters in Washington, D.C., Belize's Ambassador to the OAS Nestor Mendez objected strongly to the use of the map and indicated to the forum that Belize plans to file a formal protest before the OAS general assembly over the continued use of the erroneous map by Guatemala.

Belize has fired off a strongly worded diplomatic note to the OAS and circulated to member nations of the hemispheric body, protesting Guatemala's use of an erroneous map showing Belize as a part of Guatemala.
