dc.description.abstractThere are reports on the United States refusal to respond to claims that it will be closing the U.S. embassy in Haiti and is considering military action to enforce the trade embargo; the increased number of Haitian refugees and on a letter written to the Haitian army denouncing the violence occurring. The opposing views of Sir Shridath Ramphal, chairman of the West Indian Commission and Dame Eugenia Charles, Dominica's Prime Minister, over Caricom leaders response to Caribbean integration, are aired. The John Compton's government in St. Lucia denies claims by the opposition of attempting to realign elections boundaries and a meeting of Caribbean and Central Ameican foreign ministers is to take place in Honduras to explore opportunities for economic and diplomatic cooperation.en_US
