SAN JUAN – The government of St. Kitts and Nevis has asked Colombia to help promote the Caribbean nation’s development agenda of good governance and climate-change resilience, an official confirmed to EFE on Tuesday.
The appeal was made during a meeting Friday in Basseterre between foreign ministry representatives and a Colombian delegation led by Deputy Foreign Minister Patti Lodoño.
The meeting was chaired by St. Kitts and Nevis senior foreign officer Nerys Dockery, who congratulated the Colombian government for expanding links with the Organization for Economic Corporation and Development and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum.
“It is our hope that as you join these eminent organizations that the agenda that St. Kitts and Nevis represents – in terms of the Small Island Developing States agenda – you will be a definite friend and partner and ally in promoting our interests within these organizations,” Dockery said, according to a government statement.
Climate change and promoting post 2015 Development Goals are priorities for St. Kitts and Nevis.
