Barbados Prime Minister Mia Motley, Chairman of CARICOM

Antigua and Barbuda says it is standing in solidarity with CARICOM Chair and Barbados Prime Minister Mia Motley on her position in not sending a representative to the announced meeting with US Secretary State Mike Pompeo in Jamaica on Tuesday.

Antigua and Barbuda’s E.P. Chet Greene, Minister of Foreign Affairs said, “We are very much in support of, and identify with the sentiments expressed by the CARICOM Chair, PM Motley of Barbados. As a government, we stand in support of this position.”

PM Motley made her declaration over the weekend when she stated, “As chairman of CARICOM, it is impossible for me to agree that my Foreign Minister should attend a meeting to which members of CARICOM are not invited,” and suggested it was an attempt at divide and rule among CARICOM countries, “if some are invited and not all”.
