Saint Lucia, United States Affirm Cooperation


Saint Lucia and the United States affirmed their commitment to cooperating in several areas when Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre welcomed Roger Nyhus, the new U.S. Ambassador to the OECS and Barbados.

Nyhus paid a courtesy call to the Saint Lucia Prime Minister this week.

Pierre said the two men affirmed their commitment to working together, particularly in building climate resilience, citizen security, and economic development.

“Saint Lucia and the United States of America continue to enjoy strong diplomatic relations,” Pierre wrote on Facebook.

“I look forward to strengthening our relationship for the benefit of our people,” he stated.

Ambassador Roger Nyhus arrived in Barbados on Thursday, January 11, 2024, following his appointment by President Joe Biden in September 2022.

In November 2023, the United States Senate unanimously confirmed him as the Ambassador to Barbados, the Federation of Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Antigua and Barbuda, the Commonwealth of Dominica, Grenada, and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

The U.S. diplomat said he looked forward to partnering closely with the seven ‘dynamic’ independent nations of the Eastern Caribbean to address climate change, enhance regional security, and promote economic prosperity.

He succeeded Ambassador Linda Taglialatela who had been serving for about seven years.

  1. And in your home office you have a highgrade skymp that the US had to revoke his visa. And the ninkanpoop KDA is now supporting it. If roshamel was there he’ll be a proper PM but he took lost his mental/tactical bearings after opening the Beausejour stadium. He got swell headed, if he had applied common sense they won’t have had so many cross overs. But here in Lucia, politicians will sell their ass and shit true their ribs to gain power. The US in this era wanted us more than we want them, because they fear RUSSIA & CHINA put anti missile defense system on our soil, we should join the BRICK, where staple food won’t go scarce such as rice, sugar, salt, potatoes, etc. With BRICK we’ll be able to trade back and forth with our Products, we’d be better off. The US system is firing back at them as we speak with the Trump saga. Had it been anyone else sovereign country serious sanctions would have been place on them. But now there very own is walking out on supreme court and the judge can’t do shit about it. Could Dominic Fedee be right by saying the SLP is supporting criminals, we lost context of his speech because the detractor and inserectionist is house in the PM cabinet. Time is a powerful tool.

  2. Everything thing is Pierres fault …rain flood storm water shortage power cut hurricane covid crime War in Ukraine Israel invasion into Gaza . World shortage of goods.
    Come on people the criticism of the PM is bordering on the ridiculous.

  3. Behind the sheepish grin on Pip’s face hides the thought that, when next he faces the citizens of St. Lucia, he wouldn’t be able to honestly say to them:

    “My moral compass is so damaged, that I find it impossible to withhold my cooperation from a country, the US, which funds and supports genocide!”

  4. God bless America ..regardless of its flaws several Lucians have benefited from opportunities in the US they would have NEVER achieved in St. Lucia ..let’s be honest.

    I am so grateful because when I was denied a job in St. Lucia (because of my grandmother’s political affiliation) even though I have passed a test.
    I had never voted but was denied a job based on my grandmother party choice.

    I left St. Lucia shortly thereafter and have gone on to an acquire a Bachelor, Masters and several other credentials.

    What was meant for evil by the powers in St. Lucia at that time, turned out for my good…therefore I say ..God Bless America.

    What about the millions that have been killed via the genocidal policies of the US, since the end of World War II? No concern for you?

    In 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King said:
    “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. Never again can we afford to live with the narrow, provincial ‘outside agitator’ idea. Anyone who lives inside the United States can never be considered an outsider anywhere within its bounds.”
