CARICOM URGES PEACEFUL RESOLUTION TO “UNSATISFACTORY SITUATION” IN VENEZUELA
Venezuela must not be further tipped into chaos by external powers attempting to enforce some kind of rule not necessarily democratically entrenched.
Regional Heads of Government want all actors, internal and external, to avoid actions which will escalate an already explosive situation to the detriment of the people of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela and which could have far-reaching negative consequences for the wider region.
Represented were leaders from Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Belize, Dominica, Jamaica, Montserrat, St.Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St.Vincent and the Grenadines, Trinidad and Tobago; Foreign Ministers of Grenada and Suriname.
They expressed grave concern about the plight of the people of Venezuela and the increasing volatility of the situation.
They have agreed that the Chairman of Conference, Dr. Timothy Harris, Prime Minister of St. Kitts and Nevis will seek an urgent meeting with the United Nations Secretary-General to request the U.N’s assistance in resolving the issue.
