Guyana assures St Vincent and the Grenadines of “full support” in dealing with an impending volcano crisis

Statement of His Excellency Dr Mohamed Irfaan Ali, President of the Cooperative Republic of Guyana on the impending Crisis in St Vincent and the Grenadines

Given the emerging situation in St Vincent and the Grenadines, this afternoon I called on Prime Minister Dr Ralph Gonsalves and assured him of Guyana’s full support to deal with this impending crisis.

The First Minister and I discussed immediate support, which will be required in the response. The First Minister noted that, besides the need to evacuate citizens, there were other urgent needs.

I committed to him that, upon receiving the full list of their needs, Guyana would immediately draw up a national response to supply the items and arrange for them to be shipped to St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

At this time, we would like to secure the unwavering support and solidarity of the citizens of St Vincent and the Grenadines of Guyana.
