Dominica’s PM Says U.S. Should Re-Define Approach to Caribbean

SAN JUAN – The prime minister of Dominica, Roosevelt Skerrit, said on Thursday that Washington needs to re-define its approach to the Caribbean.

“The present approach they are taking is wrong and is ill-advised, if they say their strategy is to re-assert themselves in the Caribbean region,” he said during an interview on state-run radio.

Skerrit, a staunch ally of Venezuela, was apparently talking about Washington’s recent imposition of sanctions on some members of the government in Caracas who U.S. officials say are responsible for violations of human rights.

Dominica’s premier was among leaders of several Caribbean Community member-states who met last week in Jamaica with U.S. President Barack Obama.

Skerrit, re-elected in December to another five-year term, told listeners he was certain that Washington “will have to re-define or re-strategize the approach to the Caribbean.”

In the interview, Skerrit defended the positions adopted by regional leaders on matters critical to the Caribbean.

“I think we have to be grateful for the very strong stance which the Caribbean takes on very critical matters,” Skerrit said, making reference to the opposition within CARICOM to current U.S. policy toward Venezuela.
