U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo arrives in Guyana today on a two-day visit. During this time he will lead a U.S. delegation in meetings with President Dr Irfaan Ali and Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, Hugh Hilton Todd.
The two sides will conclude agreements aimed at strengthening the Guyana/U.S. cooperation programme.
Secretary Pompeo is also scheduled to meet with Secretary-General of the Caribbean Community, Ambassador Irwin LaRocque.
According to the Foreign Affairs Ministry, Guyana’s relations with the U.S. have been based over the years on mutual respect and a desire to cooperate in several areas that would be of benefit to the people of both countries.
The basis of that relationship has not changed with respect to the sovereign decisions taken by each country. Secretary Pompeo’s visit will, therefore, provide a timely boost to the further deepening of relations between the two hemispheric neighbours.
Always tell someone how you feel because opportunities are lost in the blink of an eye but regret can last a lifetime.
