President Ali, in phone call with Gonsalves, pledges help for looming volcano crisis in St Vincent 

See below statement from President Irfaan Ali on the looming volcano crisis in St Vincent and the Grenadines:
Having regards to the emerging situation in St Vincent and the Grenadines, this afternoon I called Prime Minister Ralph Gonsalves and assured him of Guyana’s full support in dealing with this looming crisis.
The Prime Minister and I discussed immediate support which will be required in the response. The Prime Minister indicated that apart from the need to evacuate citizens, there were other emergency material needs.
 I committed to him that Guyana, upon receiving the full list of their needs, would immediately put together a national response to supply the items and arrange for them to be shipped to St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
At this time, we would like to assure the citizens of St. Vincent and the Grenadines of Guyana’s unwavering support and solidarity.


Editor’s Note: St Vincent’s Prime Minister, Dr Ralph Gonsalves, issued an immediate evacuation order as the situation at La Soufriere volcano deteriorated further on Thursday afternoon, and announced that several cruise ships would be arriving from Friday to help get residents out.
