He was addressing a media conference yesterday at the Piarco International Airport, after returning from New York as part of the CARICOM delegation that met with UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres in New York.
Rowley said he spent time impressing upon the US Ambassador to the UN Jonathan Cohen, the concerns regarding the repercussions of abandonment of the non-intervention and non-interference principle.
“It’s a problem that we are all trying to work through. What you have is a difference of opinion. And we maintain without apology that TT is entitled to have a difference of opinion with any country on any matter in the interest of the people of TT. I am a little disappointed that even in this sensitive situation we could not count on the Opposition.”
He said it could have been useful if the Opposition saw the principle upon which the Government was standing in leadership with CARICOM “because that is the principle that protects small states more than any other. We cannot be convenient with principle.”
