Jamaica Won’t Interfere with Venezuelan Crisis

The Jamaican government is maintaining its stance of non-interference regarding the worsening political and economic crisis in Venezuela.

That’s according to Foreign Affairs and Trade Minister, Kamina Johnson Smith.

She was speaking this morning at the Ministry’s headquarters in New Kingston.

At least three people were killed in the Venezuela capital Caracas yesterday during an anti-government demonstration dubbed “the mother of all marches”.

Minister Johnson-Smith says the situation in Venezuela is of grave concern to the Jamaican government.

She says the Venezuelan government should move to resolve the situation peacefully.
