Serbia’s honorary counsel in Guatemala Marcela Arzu de Lozano sent food aid to some hundred poor households in the village without a name, and the villagers named it Canton Serbia in a sign of respect, N1 reported on Friday.

Earlier,  a street in Serbia was named after Guatemala’s Nobel Prize winner, a poet Miguel Ángel Asturias, while Yugoslav Nobel Prize winner, a writer Ivo Andric got a street in Guatemala City named after him when the two countries improved bilateral relations.
