By Aaron Humes: National Security Advisor to President of the United States Joe Biden, Jake Sullivan, participated in a meeting with foreign affairs ministers of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) on Friday as part of the body’s virtual regular meeting.
The Cabinet-level posting is responsible for directing national security policy at the executive level and manages the affairs of chief investigative and espionage bodies the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI); Central Intelligence Agency (CIA); and National Security Agency (NSA), among others.
He has proposed regular high-level meetings including a Summit between CARICOM Heads of Government and President Biden.
The Ministers were particularly pleased with the reset of CARICOM-U.S. relations as this was the second high-level interaction under the Biden-Harris administration which took office in January. Last month the Foreign Ministers met with U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken.
At Friday’s meeting, they emphasized the need for the relationship to be placed in an institutional framework to facilitate a regular and patterned schedule of meetings.
Emphasis was placed on the importance of addressing the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic effects through access to vaccines and economic recovery financing. Matters relating to security and climate change were also discussed.
