The Minister of Foreign and Caricom Affairs Minister is hoping to quell whatever tensions may have arisen between Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley and Indian High Commissioner Arun Kumar Sahu, following statements made by the PM.
Dr Amery Browne revealed to media on Saturday, that he has initiated moves towards easing the diplomatic tensions and has “reached out” to Sahu to “engage in further dialogue to help resolve the situation.”
Browne said “dialogue and diplomacy” offer a chance for the countries to draw closer together.
The issue between the two – Rowley and Sahu, stems from the India-donated Covid19 vaccines to the Caribbean.
Rowley, during his Conversations with the Prime Minister programme on Thursday, said Sahu never spoke to his Government about these vaccine gifts and had denied knowledge of any such programme.
However, Sahu on Friday fired back, slamming Rowley’s “diplomatic decency”, saying, “I don’t think it is in the pale of diplomatic decency to personally attack a resident High Commissioner.”
