In the Communique issued following the conclusion of the 31st CARICOM Inter-Sessional Summit held from February 18 – 19 in St Michael, Barbados, the Heads of Government recorded their repudiation of the statement.
They acknowledged that, of their own first-hand knowledge, the persons sent had added tremendous value to helping their citizens.
The Heads of Government expressed “deep appreciation” for the medical assistance provided by Cuba to CARICOM Member States over the years. They said this assistance has helped to build their health sectors.
The Communique also recorded and reiterated Heads of Government’s concern over the enhanced sanctions announced by the US Government under Title III of the Helms-Burton Act which strengthen the US economic, commercial and financial embargo against Cuba.
They denounced as unjustifiable, the application of laws and measures of an extra-territorial nature, that are contrary to international law.
