Following Barack Obama’s victory in the US presidential election, Prime Minister RooseveltSkerrit lauded the relationship between Dominica and the United States of America, and his relationship with President Barack Obama.
The Prime Minister said he was “very pleased with the outcome ofthe election”, adding, “we have always enjoyed a close relationship with the United States of America and President Obama is a true friend. I have discussed our development plans with him on several occasions and he has always been cordial and attentive”.
Prime Minister Skerrit expressed his desire to strengthen relations with the United States noting that “US foreign policy is increasingly focused on anti-terrorism activities and dealing with global hot-spots rather than developmental issues, particularly those of the Caribbean and Latin American, hopefully this will improve going forward”.
As is customary, an official congratulatory message will be sent to President Obama on behalf of the Government and people of the Commonwealth of Dominica.
