Basseterre, St. Kitts, April 08, 2016 (SKNIS): Deputy Premier of Nevis and Minister of Foreign Affairs, the Honourable Mark Brantley, told students of the Nevis Sixth Form and the Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College that each individual is an ambassador of his or her country and that each of them must be cognizant that “when you speak, what you do, what you say, how you conduct yourself, is a representation of your country.”
Earlier this week, The Ministry of Foreign Affairs hosted a round table discussion with students of the Nevis Sixth Form and the Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College and visiting ambassadors and honorary consuls who represent St. Kitts and Nevis.
During his welcome remarks, Minister Brantley told the students that it is a glorious opportunity for them to meet and interact with the men and women who represent the Federation, adding that he believes we “have a solid cadre of people who work incredibly hard to make life for us here at home and those of us abroad better.”
Challenging the students not to be shy, the Foreign Affairs Minister said, “I want you to ask them all the hard questions like what they have done for you lately in their diplomatic roles, and what it is they are doing to make your life better. They are here to answer those questions.”
The Round table discussion was a part of Diplomatic Week 2016.
