St. Kitts-Nevis has assumed the chairmanship of the Permanent Council of the Organization of American States (OAS) until March 31.
The twin-island Federation’s Permanent Representative, Warren Everson Alarick Hull, assumed the chair on Monday at a handing-over ceremony at OAS headquarters, noting that he assumed the responsibility in a challenging context for the region.
The OAS and its member states are at a crossroads: the ongoing pandemic has presented an additional challenge to the region’s resilience, he said.
As a family of nations under one umbrella, it serves no useful purpose to hide our frailties. I believe it is of paramount importance that we confront our challenges together he added.
