PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC) — The United States has postponed a meeting with a Caribbean Community (Caricom) delegation on Wednesday to discuss the ongoing political situation in Venezuela, Trinidad and Tobago Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley said yesterday.

Rowley told a news conference he had been made aware of the postponement by the US Embassy here, adding “they gave reasons of one kind or another, I don’t really want to get into it.

“If they are not available, they are not available. It doesn’t matter what the reason is. If they wanted to see…what they do know we are available to be seen. Maybe their scheduling did not allow it,” he told reporters.

Rowley said it is not a question of disappointment that the meeting on Wednesday would not now take place, adding “it’s an area of common ground once we keep talking, it is our view, nationally Trinidad and Tobago and Caricom, that once we talk these issues the pathway towards a peaceful and sustainable outcome is where it could end up”.
