CARICOM gives positive feedback from meeting with Venezuelan opposition leader

The CARICOM Secretariat has said that the region's Foreign Affairs Ministers who met with Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaidó on Saturday, via video conference, see the meeting as a significant first step in a series of potential engagements that should unfold by agreed mechanisms, within the framework of the Constitution of Venezuela and the rule of law.
 
The meeting, which was held in Barbados, is in accordance with the decision by CARICOM leaders to facilitate a peaceful resolution of the political and economic crisis in the South American country.
 
CARICOM said the meeting provided a greater understanding of Mr. Guaido's views and perspectives on how to move forward in the search for peaceful solutions, as well as his willingness to take part in meaningful discussions. 
 
Jamaica's Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade Minister Kamina Johnson Smith attended the talks facilitated by Canadian High Commissioner to Barbados Marie Legault.
