St. Lucia’s PM blasts UN member states on Reparation…

    By Staff Reporter at the United Nations in New York
    New York, New York - St. Lucia’s Prime Minister, Phillip J Pierre used the platform of the 78th United Nations General Assembly in New York to vehemently expressed his views on Reparation, Gun Violence, the need for Reform of the global Financial System, and Support for Haiti and Taiwan


    The Prime Minister did not mince his words during his presentation, noting that Small Islands States, including those in the Caribbean, are continually suffering.
    “The time has come for the issue of Reparation for the Transatlantic Slave Trade and Slavery in the Western Hemisphere to become a more central part of the global agenda and the work of the United Nations. And not an issue only to be whispered in the corridors and at the margins,” said Pierre.
    The issue of Climate Change continues to plague Small Island Developing States (SIDS) and accessing financing, especially commitments on loss and damage finding have proven to be a challenge. It is against that backdrop he called for financial reforms. 
    “What is critically needed is a complete reform of the global financial system to make development financing truly developmental, and climate financing truly just. The negotiations and the agreements for developmental assistance for these states must take into account the peculiar vulnerabilities,” explained Pierre.
    The St. Lucia PM also called for the inclusion of Taiwan in decision making bodies internationally and more attention to be placed on Haiti’s social economic turmoil.
    “How can trust and global solidarity for sustainable development be built when the unwarranted Russian war in Ukraine rages on… If trust and globally solidarity for sustainable development are to be rebuilt, the unjust and unilateral and inhumane embargo on the people of Cuba must be immediately withdrawn.”
    The United Nations General Assembly’s Debate brought together all 193 member states to share and discuss areas of interests and challenges affecting them.
