Caricom Agrees To Support To Venezuela

The Prime Minister of Bahamas, Dr Hubert Minnis, spoke with members of the Caribbean Community Monday night and agreed in principle to lend support to Venezuela during its current wave of unrest, according to Press Secretary Anthony Newbold.

At a press briefing at the Office of the Prime Minister on Tuesday, Mr Newbold said after speaking with Caricom members over the telephone, Prime Minister Minnis directed Minister of Foreign Affairs Darren Henfield to speak on the role the Caribbean Community can have, during a special meeting of the Organization of American States (OAS).

“The minister of foreign affairs is in Washington, DC, Minister Henfield is there and he is there because of the situation in Venezuela,” Mr Newbold said.

“We know there has been unrest there, in fact yesterday Prime Minister Minnis engaged in his first meeting with his counterparts in Caricom, a telephone meeting, where discussions on that were held. (At) the special Organization of American States meeting dealing with the situation in Venezuela, Mr Henfield will talk about the role OAS can play in helping that situation. A decision was agreed to yesterday by Caricom heads, and I will get back to you on that . . . all participating countries will do all they can to bring stability back to Venezuela.”
