US-Caribbean Security Meeting
The Minister traveled to Nassau Bahamas to attend the US-Caribbean High Level Citizen Security Meetings from June 3rd to 5th 2015 - which was presented by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Immigration of the Commonwealth of Bahamas and held at the Atlantis Paradise Island Resort Hotel.
The aim of the meetings was to address issues of security in the region for Caribbean citizens by way of discussions with the United States, since it is recognized that a large portion of illegal firearms enter the Caribbean through the United States.
The meetings marked the 5th anniversary of the Caribbean Basin Security Initiative (“the CBSI”). The CBSI is one pillar of a U.S. security strategy focused on citizen safety throughout the Caribbean.
