US Secretary of State to visit Guyana
United States (US) Secretary of State, Michael Pompeo is expected to visit Guyana next week, a high-level source has confirmed to the News Room.
Pompeo will be the highest-ranking United States official to visit Guyana. The visit is expected to occur on September 17 and 18, 2020.
The US Secretary of State is expected to sign a number of agreements with President Irfaan Ali.
Pompeo in July announced visa sanctions against former Government Ministers and officials of the APNU+AFC administration over efforts to derail the results of the 2020 elections.
The Government of Guyana in April turned down a request from the US Government to relay the Voice of America (VOA) radio broadcasts to Venezuela.
Former President David Granger in a comment to the media at the time, said the request was refused so as not to further destabilise relations between the two neighbours.
