Guatemala demands Mexico pledge over blocked Cuban migrants

Part of a group of 300 Cubans who remain in a shelter rest, in La Cruz, Guanacaste, Costa Rica, near the border with Nicaragua on November 26, 2015Guatemala on Wednesday said it needed a pledge from Mexico that it would allow in thousands of Cuban migrants headed to the US before it can let them transit its territory from Costa Rica or Panama. “Mexico must guarantee in writing that it will receive these Cuban citizens” before Guatemala can grant them passage, Foreign Minister Carlos Raul Morales told the television network Telemundo. The demand is the latest in an effort by several Central American countries to find a way for Cubans fleeing their island to reach the United States, which has a long-standing policy of accepting them if they set foot on its soil.
