Opposition Leader Kamla Persad Bissessar is calling on the Energy Minister to state whether any headway was made with the Venezuelan government during deliberations held with the Maduro administration in Caracas recently.
Speaking at the UNC Monday Forum, Mrs Persad Bissessar questioned what progress was made between Trinidad and Tobago and the government of Venezuela within the energy sector in the past seven years.
The Energy Ministry in a statement said, Minister Stuart Young met Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro on energy matters in Caracas last Friday.
The release said Minister Young, who is also Minister in the Office of the Prime Minister, “conducted a number of high level meetings with key members of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela’s Government.”
Minister Young’s discussions throughout the day surrounded matters of energy, security and other matters of national interest to both neighbours.
Mrs Persad Bissessar said the population should be informed of the outcome of these deliberations.
