Antigua and Barbuda's PM Grateful to Sovereign for Relief Dispatched to Hurricane-Hit Country

Prime minister of Antigua and Barbuda Gaston Browne expressed his gratitude to HM King Mohammed VI for the humanitarian and material aid that was sent by Morocco to the tropical storm- and hurricane-hit Caribbean country.

Receiving on Monday Morocco's ambassador to Antigua and Barbuda, with residence in Saint Lucia, Abderrahim Kadmiri, Browne charged the Moroccan diplomat with conveying his thanks and gratitude to HM the King and lauded Morocco's swift response to the natural disaster that struck Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica and other countries north-east the Caribbean Islands.

He also thanked Morocco for pledging to finance the reconstruction of Barbuda, voicing his conviction that the said aid is part of south-south cooperation.

Kadmiri conveyed to prime minister Browne a message of sympathy and solidarity by HM the King following the recent hurricanes that hit the country, and assured him that Morocco will assist the country in relief and rebuilding efforts.

During the meeting, the two officials also discussed the opening in Morocco of a joint mission of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS). This proposal, made by Browne, was submitted to the OECS latest meeting last June in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.
