The Government of Trinidad and Tobago is eagerly anticipating working with new US President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
This, according to Foreign Affairs Minister, Dr Amery Browne.
Biden and Harris were sworn in at Capitol Hill yesterday and Browne said TT cannot wait to work with the new US administration on a range of issues and building on “the long history of excellent relations between both nations.”
Browne said, “The Government of T&T wishes the best for the people of the United States and was pleased with the advent of a peaceful and orderly Presidential inauguration in Washington DC.”
Browne said the ministry followed the inauguration proceedings closely and also linked with T&T’s Embassy in Washington.
Biden, in his first speech yesterday, said: “America has been tested and we’ve come out stronger for it. We will repair our alliances, and engage with the world once again. Not to meet yesterday’s challenges but today’s and tomorrow’s challenges. And we’ll lead not merely by the example of our power but the power of our example.”
It was confirmed that Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley, as Chairman of Caricom sent a congratulatory letter to Biden.
