Young: USA is ‘treasured partner’ of T&T; Opposition Leader spreading ‘unfounded’ fears

“Notwithstanding efforts by the UNC to undermine Trinidad and Tobago’s position—particularly at this time of sensitive negotiations—Trinidad and Tobago reaffirms its principle positions and counts the USA among its treasured partners in observing and protecting these principles.”

The following release on relations between Trinidad and Tobago and the United States, in the context of either nation’s stance on Venezuela, was forwarded to Wired868 by Minister of Communications Stuart Young:

The Government is compelled to reassure citizens that the attempt to cause panic by the United National Congress (UNC), and in particular, the Leader of the Opposition Mrs Kamla Persad Bissesar, by creating fear about a change in relations between Trinidad and Tobago and the United States of America (USA) is unfounded and a naked attempt to cover up the most recent overwhelming criticism of the Opposition.

We remind that CARICOM, and many other countries, took an identical position of non-interference and non-intervention with respect to Venezuela. CARICOM has sent a delegation, including Prime Minister Dr the Honourable Keith Rowley to the United Nations to have discussions surrounding the Venezuelan issue and its potential threat to regional security, social and economic disruption.

Notwithstanding efforts by the UNC to undermine Trinidad and Tobago’s position—particularly at this time of sensitive negotiations—Trinidad and Tobago reaffirms its principle positions and counts the USA among its treasured partners in observing and protecting these principles.
