St Vincent PM describes meeting between Trump, C’bean delegation as “troubling”

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC) — Prime Minister of St Vincent and the Grendines Dr Ralph Gonsalves has described the recent meeting between United States President Donald Trump and some Caribbean leaders as “troubling”.
Speaking to reporters here late Saturday, Gonsalves noted that there was no true representation of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) as the current chairman of the regional body, Prime Minister of St Kitts and Nevis Dr Timothy Harris, was not invited to the meeting.
He also pointed out that also absent were members of the CARICOM advisory committee including himself, Barbados Prime Minister Mia Mottley and Trinidad and Tobago’s Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley.
“None of those persons were invited and for it to be a true CARICOM representation you must at least have the chairman so that any discussion of Venezuela in that context . . . it cuts across the agreement mechanisms that we have put in place,” said Gonsalves who was speaking following a meeting with stakeholders in the regional carrier, LIAT.,_Cbean_delegation_as_troubling?profile=1607
