The United Nations General Assembly starts today in New York and will be attended by over 130 Heads of State and Government officials. However, opposition MP MP Rodney Charles is today claiming that this country continues to be missing in action when important decisions are being made globally on matters of national importance.
Calling our foreign policy either non-existent or reactive, he says Prime Minister Dr. Keith Rowley missed an opportunity to gain useful knowledge from Turkish President Recep Erdogan about the nine citizens being detained in that country.
Mr. Charles says Dr. Rowley has opted instead to remain at home and it is most unlikely that President Erdogan will meet with our Foreign Minister Dennis Moses who is heading our delegation in New York.
He notes too that information gained in informal discussions would have helped also in our ongoing struggle of reducing crime by radical elements.
