Former Prime Minister of Jamaica, Percival James Patterson called on Monday for Caribbean nations to support a united stance on the situation in Venezuela, reminding regional leaders that they had reached a common position rejecting external intervention in the country’s internal affairs.

Patterson, during the launch of his book titled “My Political Journey” at the University of the West Indies, he was quoted as saying “We expect all our leaders to act in accordance with that decision and not to veer off in support [of those] who have a contrary view, whether in the halls of the Organisation of American States or the corridors at Mar-a-Lago.”

Patterson, who was Jamaica’s sixth Prime Minister, was referring to a questionable meeting held on March 22 between U.S. President Donald Trump and the presidents of Bahamas, Haiti, Jamaica, and Saint Lucia, held without true representation of CARICOM as their representatives were not invited.
