US wants to extend pact with Guatemala to other nations

The United States hopes to persuade Honduras and El Salvador to join Guatemala in accepting the designation as a safe third country for asylum seekers, a senior US official said here Thursday.

“This is not something that the United States is asking to work on with Guatemala alone. We see this as a regional responsibility,” Acting Homeland Security Secretary Kevin McAleenan said in Guatemala City. “We are now seeking discussions with Honduras and El Salvador about similar arrangements.”
