Posted: Tuesday, January 21, 2020. 2:25 pm CST.

By BBN Staff: Two Caribbean countries, Trinidad and Tobago and Barbados have announced their decision to boycott a roundtable discussion with United States Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo scheduled for tomorrow.

Pompeo is visiting Jamaica and is scheduled to meet with Jamaican Prime Minister, Andrew Holness, then meet with Caribbean leaders.

 However, Barbados Prime Minister, Mia Mottley informed that she will not send her officials to the meeting since only some regional heads were invited.

Trinidad and Tobago has now said that they will also not attend the meeting.

“PM Mottley has the full support of the Government and the people of Trinidad and Tobago in outlining our principles and vision of Caribbean unity. In the expectation of Caribbean unity, the Prime Minister of Barbados speaks for Trinidad and Tobago,” said Prime Minister Keith Rowley.

Among the issues expected to be discussed are outstanding issues relating to Venezuela.

The United States Department of State said that after his meeting with PM Holness, Pompeo will conduct the  multilateral roundtable discussion with Caribbean leaders, and deliver remarks on U.S. Caribbean relations.
