St Kitts and Nevis (WINN): A delegation from the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela arrived to the country on March 16th to examine possible locations for the construction of the fifty petrocases houses promised by Venezuela.
The Venezuelan team, led by Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs for the Caribbean Raul LiCausi, will evaluate four sites and distinguish inexpensive areas for the building of the petrocases houses, with the advice of the St. Kitts-Nevis government.
Venezuela’s donation of fifty petrocases houses to the Federation is intended to strengthen diplomatic ties between the two Caribbean countries, and continued cooperation between Venezuela and the Caribbean region.
Minister Raul Li Causi disclosed that another donation of petrocases houses were being built in Dominica, after a heavy storm last year destroyed their infrastructure.
He also added that the petrocases houses program was implemented throughout the Caribbean region, to encourage friendly relations between Venezuela and other Caribbean countries.
The visit from the delegation was the result of mutual talks between Prime Minister Dr. Timothy Harris and Foreign Minister of Venezuela Delcy Rodriguez on March 6th, shortly after the Prime Minister participated in the 14th Summit of the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our America - Peoples’ Trade Treaty.
Prime Minister Harris expressed gratitude to the Venezuelan government and the people of Venezuela for their continued interest in the development of St. Kitts and Nevis, and ensured that the federation will continue to be a loyal ally to Venezuela and advance Venezuelan interests on the international stage and other platforms.
