By Aaron Humes: A traditional Special Meeting of The CARICOM Council for Foreign and Community Relations (COFCOR) took place on Wednesday to prepare for the forthcoming United Nations General Assembly and the high-level meetings to be held in the margins there.
The group set out the regional priorities: Climate Change and the related preparations and coordination of positions for the forthcoming COP26 Summit in Scotland in November of this year; economic and public health concerns related to COVID-19, with the accent placed on Financing for Development issues including access to Concessional Financing to facilitate the recovery of the debilitated Community economies; and vaccine discrimination. The acceptance by developed countries of only a narrow range of vaccines limits the travel possibilities of the nationals of countries that have used other types of vaccines.
Preparation for the coming Sixth Summit of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC), due to take place in Mexico on Saturday, 18 September 2021, and leadership of the Commonwealth Secretariat were also included in the Meeting’s deliberations.
Updates were also provided on border issues involving Belize and Guyana. The Community reiterated its support for their security, sovereignty, and territorial integrity and the ongoing judicial processes.
