dc.description.abstractIn this report, Cuba has rejected a US State Department report which says that human rights on the island have deteriorated. Next, the Haitian Ambassador to the Dominican Republic says that Haiti is concerned about what it considers to be the summary deportation of Haitians from the neighbouring mainland. Next, the constitution of Trinidad and Tobago does not bar former politicians from becoming Head of States. However, the issue of whether former Prime Minister, A.N.R. Robinson should become Head of State is heating up, as those oppose to it say he is too steep in politics to be impartial. Next, new Secretary General of the UN, Angela King, says that she anticipates her new role at the UN will continue to focus on the advancement of women. Following, as the European nations launch their year against racism, it is being said it is the first time that European institutions would engage in action to combat racism.en_US
