Work together to preserve the peace – CARICOM Chairman
St. Kitts and Nevis Prime Minister and Chair of the Caribbean Community (CARICOM), Dr. The Hon. Timothy Harris, reminded that “unity of purpose” was the foundation of the Community, when he addressed the Thirtieth Inter-Sessional Meeting of the Conference which opened earlier today, in Kitts and Nevis.
“Unity of purpose must be at the fulcrum of our efforts” to build a strong, progressive and prosperous Community,” the Prime Minister said.
To this end, Prime Minister Harris alluded to, among other issues, crime and security in the Region.
“Together we must work to reduce the level of violent crimes in our Region, preserving the peace and tranquility consistent with our acceptance of our Region as a zone of peace,” the Prime Minister also said.
Crime and Security is the fourth pillar of the 45-year old regional integration movement. The Community Strategic Plan 2015-2019 identifies Enhancing Citizen Security and Justice as one of its strategy to build the social resilience of the Community.
