Rowley to attend CARICOM meeting on Venezuela in Uruguay

Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley will join Barbados Prime Minister Mia Mottley and Dr Timothy Harris, CARICOM Chairman and Prime Minister of St Kitts and Nevis at an international meeting on the situation on Venezuela which will be held in Montevideo, Uruguay on February 7.

At the special emergency meeting of the CARICOM Heads of Government which was held via video conference on February 1, it was decided that the three Prime Ministers who led talks in New York with the United Nations should represent the region in Uruguay.

The governments of Mexico and Uruguay have called for the conference with representatives from the main countries and international organisations that hold a neutral position towards Venezuela.

The purpose of the conference is to lay the foundation for establishing a new mechanism for dialogue that, with the inclusion of all Venezuelan forces, will contribute to restoring stability and peace in that country.
