Belize & the United Nations

Belize is a small country located in Central America, bordered by Mexico to the north and Guatemala to the west and south. It was a British colony until 1981 when it gained independence and became a member of the United Nations. 

Belize applied for membership by a telegram on the date of its independence and was admitted by the General Assembly, via a resolution, on 25 September 1981. Since then, Belize has been an active member of the United Nations and has participated in various UN programs and initiatives.
