Defend region


Share post:

Caribbean people and institutions have to stand in defence of the region against external attacks from those who don’t have its best interests at heart, says Dominica’s Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit.

And he has challenged regional people to work for the development of their territories and stop tearing down the efforts of their respective governments which are seeking to improve their lives.

In a rebuke of the agenda of the European Union and First World countries and their institutions which blacklist or otherwise sideline vital sectors of Caribbean territories, Skerrit lamented that regional institutions and people do not rise to the defence of their governments.

Instead, he said, they either remain silent or blame the administration. (SP)
