U.S. Ambassador in “productive meeting” with Opposition
U.S. Ambassador to Guyana, Sarah-Ann Lynch, has met with Opposition Leader Joseph Harmon and Leader of the Alliance for Change Khemraj Ramjattan in what the Embassy has described as a “productive meeting.”
“…Ambassador Sarah-Ann Lynch and Deputy Chief of Mission Mark Cullinane listened to their current policy priorities and plans for advancing legislation and programmes that will benefit all Guyanese,” the Embassy stated on its Facebook page.
The Embassy said Ambassador Lynch asked about opposition strategies to alleviate poverty, address climate change, and enhance national security.
“Both sides emphasised a commitment to strengthening ties between the United States and Guyana, and reinforcing social cohesion after the political turmoil of Guyana’s 2020 election cycle,” the Embassy stated.
The U.S. government had revoked the visas of key members of the then APNU+AFC government when it refused to demit office and accept that the PPP had won the March 2, 2020, general and regional elections.
The coalition was vehement in its opposition to the U.S. government’s continuous insistence on the need for the results of the elections to be accepted, insisting that the U.S. and other foreign powers, should stay out of Guyana’s affairs.
