Prime Minister Gaston Browne has returned to Antigua & Barbuda from the 38th summit of CARICOM leaders taking place in Grenada, reportedly due to an emergency.
Browne was present at the opening yesterday, but sent a statement to CMC about his take on the views the CARICOM Chairman Grenadian Prime Minister Dr Keith Mitchell has on the West Indies Cricket Board.
It states, “Antigua and Barbuda as a matter of principle does not interfere in the internal affairs of institutions, and governments that are governed by democratically elected officials.”
It is not clear if the dispute is related to his return to Antigua and Barbuda. When asked the reason for his return Browne told Observer Media it was because of “urgent business of state”.
Foreign Affairs Charles ‘Max’ Fernandez, Ambassador Colin Murdoch, Ambassador Clarence Henry and Foreign Service Officer Babu Browne remain in Grenada to represent Antigua and Barbuda at the summit.
Browne also touches on other regional matters in the statement he released to Observer Media below:
